Filled with extreme passion, 16-year-old Jocelina Depina speaks about her fondness for the color pink.
“Pink represents the power within every woman,” says Depina, from New Mission High School.
They say that pink attains an aura of intensive love from the color red set off by a sense of purity and openness from the color white.
Although lots of men wear pink, for many the color symbolizes the potential in every woman and brings out her capacity to rise above.
However, Gabriela Pires, 15, from New Mission, puts on a facial expression of great disgust as she says:
“The color just doesn’t fit me as a person.”
Pires feels as if her strong personality is not a match to that hue. To her, pink represents being girly and she sees it as a sign of weakness.
As 17-year-old Tatiana Lopes walks down the street recently, she is captivated by a shimmering pink rose.
“There’s just something about the color that fascinates me,” says Lopes, from New Mission. “It’s bright and has a certain sparkle.”
Lopes is drawn to pink, she says, because it appeals to her eyes and she is able to connect with it -- as do many others.
She says: “It contributes in building up a delightful sense of happiness.”
