The purpose of this project was to better understand our own story and how it has shaped us into who we are today. We shared out story in class so we can begin to build a sense of belongingness and community that we will need as a solid foundation for our Junior year. Junior year will test us and push to our limits, so we need to understand each other and our struggles. With this understanding of each other's stories we will bond on common struggles and achievements as an 11th grade team.
This assignment as a whole was great icebreaker for our team, our team is very diverse and filled with individual from varying backgrounds. I, for this project, wanted to dive into my personal racial identity and explore the factors that made me who I am today. With a bit of photo album page flipping and home movie watching sessions I identified what shaped my character.
