I want to really break down what it is that immigrants go through everyday and what it is they do that actually help the economy and democracy. I’d like to focus on the younger generations because in my opinion older generations already have their own opinion set and stoned. But, because we’re continue this line of gen Z, I’d like to enlighten them with information that is statistically proven, instead of opinionated comments. For example, the titles a lot of Americans paint on immigrants such as, criminals, illegal, bacd, disgusting, etc. I also want to distinguish the difference between a color immigrant and a white Immigrant. As unfortunate as it sounds till this day color is still an issue and although they’re both immigrants color really does ether benefit or not for them. When portraying my work I’d like to use a power point with interesting images/texts as well as questioning the audience to have their opinions first stated and see if it change towards the end of my presentation. Power-points tend to be a good tool to really get your point across but it can be boring based on how exactly you want to display your work. Young audience get bored when seeing a power point filled with countless of words. Therefore I will put up some images and questions and some important reflection question to really put the audience in the shoes of a hard working immigrant making a living in America. Some concerns about finishing my project is whether I moved the audience. But, overall it’s to get my point across and try to unlock a new side for them.
