ButJune Kyra Dela Chica, a 17-year-old incoming senior at a high school in Oregon, might have done just that.
She wanted to do something fun for her school ID, and even though her idea was kind of crazy, she said it was surprisingly easy to convince the photographer to let her take it that way.
So what was her creative idea?
That would be to completely go full-on Fa Mulan for the shot.
Once the makeup was on, I moved my way to the pictures station and lined up, Dela Chica said. One of the ladies was very open-minded and laughed; the other lady who was actually taking my photo was very grumpy and rude to be honest. I remember her saying, I dont know if you can take this photo. Are the admins okay?”
(In case you need it, here’s the picture for reference.)
I replied with, ‘The admins said if Im okay with showing my face like this to hundreds of people then go on ahead,’” she said. “‘And if its really THAT bad I can always retake it. She shrugged and replied with a simple okay.
And this is the beautiful final product.
She tweeted out the photo and it instantly went viral, racking up more than 77,000 retweets and counting.
To be honest, when I posted it on Instagram andTwitter I thought my Instagram would be the only thing getting notifications, she said. I honestly would have never thought it would even get over 20 retweets, let alone 40,000. Next thing you know random people are quoting my tweets calling me a hero/savage/queen, my friends are getting notified from THEIR friends about my tweet.
In other words, she totally slayed it.
Let’s see who can top this one now…
