2013 brought forth many new and exciting changes including a new iphone, the beginnings of Obamacare, and even a new feature on instagram; however, perhaps one of the most exciting changes for us teenagers is the addition of the word "selfie" to the Oxford Dictionary. With the advent of snapchat and other photo messaging tools, the word "selfie" has worked its way into the lives of almost every young adult under the age of thirty resulting in its new, official induction to the English language. There's just something about taking a picture of oneself that appeals to the inner narcissism of every young per- son. However, due to the definition of a selfie, or rather a self-picture, many selfies depict an image much different than the actual picture. With the positioning of a caption or the angling of a camera, anyone can create a false image depicting what he or she desires to show. As a result of this, selfie photographers possess the ability to create their own photo identities - be it true or false. In this issue of Inside SI, we analyze the different identities of Saint Ignatius College Preparatory by looking through the lens of a selfie of SI.
