Frida Kahlo was born on July 6th, 1907 in Coyoacan, Mexico. Her life evolved during a historic time in Mexico when the struggle for social change began to gain significance.
The Mexican Revolution began when Frida was three years old in 1910; Frida always gave the year of her birth as 1910 in order for people to associate her directly with the revolution.
From her early childhood, Frida started to show great personality and devotion to life by overcoming a severe case of polio. She fought for her life and for her emotional wellbeing, as she had to continue her life with the physical effects from the decease.
