If I were any food, I would be an avocado, and my love for them is a quirk that my friends occasionally tease me about, although I don't really understand why avocados are such an unusual favorite food. Not only are avocados delicious, but they are flexible in cooking (they can be used in either sweet or savory dishes), and incredibly nutritious. As a vegetarian, I find them to be a very important part of my diet. I chose to represent myself on this website with an avocado because I am known for liking them so much, and because I feel that avocados are really underrated.

p.s. After doing some research, I discovered that avocados are also a symbol for both male and female sexuality, so they also relate to some of the themes of this course.
