I love being on camera and interviewing people, my goal is to become a television reporter/host in the future. When we started this project, I knew we were going to dig up a lot of issues that many people face. I learned that many racist acts are embedded in our experience, or occur because of what we’re exposed to. I also learned about the incredible scale of systemic oppression and how as individuals we can take a step towards breaking it down.
I am a passionate journalism student with an interest in print, marketing and photojournalism. ‘The Blurred Lines of Racism’ is a project that has challenged and opened my perspective in so many different ways. Throughout this project, the most important thing I’ve learned is that people need to educate themselves and see if their environment is one that encourages diversity.
I aspire to write children’s books and work with children with disabilities, helping them grow and learn and accept themselves. I hope to have at least written and published one book before I turn 24.This project helped me understand society as a whole, rather than looking at it one-sided. I was surprised to learn about issues like colourism. If we unite we can combat racism in our own communities.
I am a video director, producer, and editor. After graduation, I have dreams of working in the television industry. My contribution to this project has been a very eye-opening experience where I have been able to help tell the stories of people who have been affected by racism.
I am an aspiring broadcast/magazine content writer and I love to learn about the world around me. What draws me to journalism is the ability to tell a story and play some part in the lives of the people and places around me. This project has been a very eye-opening experience in all aspects. I think this project has taught me a lot about the way our society responds to racism. I am honoured to have been a part of this and will move forward vowing to stay educated, stay kind, and stay aware of what it is to be a human being.
Emanuel was not even in this course, but the subject matter inspired him to get involved. He wants to be a professional videographer and learned a lot about the history of racism in Canada.
My passion is to be a part of something that brings everyone joy, and for me that’s sports. One thing I learned from this project is how companies take advantage of my race’s talents to make billions while we suffer.
People at school call me the environmental queen. After graduation, I hope to pursue a career at CBC working for the science and tech unit. Throughout this project, I learned the importance of having people of colour tell their own stories in the media.
I’m a student journalist who specializes in entertainment reviews. I’m striving to be a professional video games journalist one day. With this website, I’m hoping more people understand why it’s important that we as a collective society understand the harmful effects of racism so that we may create a better future together.
I am interested in the journalism areas of news writing, feature writing, social media, and data journalism. With my passion for writing and collecting information, I knew being a researcher and writer would be a good fit for me. I have had the opportunity to explore many critical topics related to racism while working on this project.
I am a dedicated writer and storyteller with a passion for all things literature. I have a dream to become an editor-in-chief after graduation. For this project, I have learned to work together with my peers to bring awareness and knowledge about an issue that needs and demands more attention and education.
My passion revolves around the magazine industry. I am interested in writing, editing and design layout. Storytelling is what I love most. Through this project, I have been challenged. I have heard other’s stories and their voices, and learned the impacts that racism can have on society. I hope people can become educated and move forward on breaking down systemic oppressions.
My passions are sports, history, video games and reading. I gained patience and understanding of different lifestyles and opinions through this course. Being able to talk to the different individuals at our school and in the community has helped me understand and care for people. I hope to be able to talk to influential people in our community in the future. People have always interested me and I plan to help give as many people who deserve a voice a platform to speak.
After graduation I am interested in working more with social media. When I started my role as a Community Editor, I had no idea that I would love this job very much. During my two years at Sheridan, I learned so many useful skills with different programs. It was difficult at times, but overall this project was the best experience.
I am an online writer with a passion for social media and blogging. When we started this project, I had no idea how challenging the role of a web designer would be. I feel like I learned a lot about design, but I also learned a lot about racism and how badly it affects people in our society. I hope that this project opens people’s eyes so they are more willing to make a change in how they treat people of different races.
