Frida Kahlo was born in Mexico City, Mexico on July 6, 1907. Frida Kahlo was a very introverted person, and was frequently bullied, and contracted polio when she was six which caused her to grow very close to her father. On September 17, 1925, a bus Frida was riding in collided with a streetcar. This incident left Frida barely living, and crushed her dream of becoming a doctor one day. During this period of time that she spent at the hospital she painted many portraits. Frida's paintings usually contained bits of information about herself that showed how she felt on the inside. She is considered a surrealist. Many of her paintings contain nature elements such as trees, greens, or mountains. Frida has left a large imprint in the world today. She has taught others to not give up hope even when everything seems horrible. She had her entire body ruined by an accident, but managed to overcome her past and live a very successful life.
