X Hernández's portrait

“So I had a longer name—and then it was cut down during class. Like I think like somebody on the board wrote it down in a short way, and then it went all the way down to just X. X is so much easier, and it stands for what the name used to be. And yeah, now I've gone by X for like the past two or three years now. I performed the letter X, and my name is also X, because I think it's a unique letter—and it feels like sort of all-encompassing at the same time.”
