The Beauty of the World Lies in the Diversity of its People - Unknown
This project, that is being represented does not show the division between two cultures. In today’s society people can emphasize the differences between cultures. And (I) didn’t want this project to be seen as a division or separation of cultures. However this project shows a bedroom of a girl which she has two cultures, Mexican and american. Which she lives with both cultures in her household. This don't show the division between cultures but to blend cultures to combine ideas, recreational activity. A simple life that has strengths from both cultures. In the bedroom the colors shows the emotions of joy. This simple girl food from both cultures (pizza, hot dog, tacos). The sports from both (football,softball, and soccer). The music, the trumpet stands for the different stages of music, different eras in america’s music. And as for the guitar most of the mexico music is based on bands “corridos” and “mariachi.” The big gown which is part Mexican culture but more like tradition, the Quinceanera dress is a way to show the next stage of a girl heading to adulthood well to a women.
This girl’s bedroom, the design is an idea from my personal life, I’m a first generation of my family, both of my parents are Mexican. The first child to learn the american language, English, to discover the american dream. Even though my household is where my Mexican culture is expressed. Even though my parents are from mexico and I live here, i live both cultures, blending those cultures. The american culture is based on my surroundings in schools, public places, which this is also another part of my culture. It has been seen that people with different cultures are being expressed different. Being judgmental when they haven’t discovered the beauty of their culture or even the personality of the person. ALL CULTURES ARE UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL . A more specific example of the blends of cultures is school, At West Ottawa High School, I have classmates that are all over the world. When there are class discussions their cultures are expressed, listening to different stories, different recreational activities, different foods. In simpler form, their culture is enhanced. We all learn something new everyday, traveling the world while learning different cultures. It is even said that learning cultures help develop ideas / solutions. It’s just amazing to meet people from different places around the world. Since from a little girl the Mexican culture was shown to me, I was part of the culture. Being different in elementary school wasn’t a big deal. But the problem was the lack of diversity expressed.
In conclusion, Diversity is a beautiful thing. Every human being is different, unique, and special. Even for as cultures too! As told by the saying, don’t judge a book by its cover. Races, cultures, ethnicity, they’re all different but at the end we are all humans. Humans make mistakes. Don’t let fear control your conscience which make mistakes that ruin their dignity just it was shown in the book, When The Emperor Was Divine. A thing to remember is Kindness, yes this word is all over the place but it's not fully expressed all over the place. Being kind, giving people good advice, holding the door for someone, talk with someone new, being respectful to one another. The point is being kind to one another no matters the differences or from where they come from.
