The Biggest Highlights, and the Biggest Failure (Literally me)

In my project about Transphobia I had the most fun out of both projects making the poster, asking around, and getting the "scoop" on others and even starting up the GSA. But my biggest highlight was going to school on November 20th and seeing people wear the colors of my people. even if it was a handful of people it still pulled at my heartstrings and It made me want to cry that I Can be supported for being me. So I would have to say that's my favorite day of this semester. But the worst day was the day I couldn't get my poster up in the bathrooms. That was the part I spent so much time on and I knew it would spread news on Nov 20th like wildfire. But instead it was rejected because it "Surrounded one group" While at the same time for three months we had nothing but stuff talking about suicide and stress. SO yeah thanks school. But if you cant get what you want. Steal it or do it without permission. We changed the title of the poster and still put them up in the hallway.

Reflection

Well I finished mt TED talk poem thinking it would be done sooner, I haven't gotten ANY rel,y from the schools so I'm not going to be interviewing kids from middle schools and elementary schools. So I shall interview people and students from Red River and put it into the video I'm starting today.

Story Time!

I remember when I started this class I knew no one ( and their still many people I don't know) but now I know that I don't have to be shrunk up and quiet, if something matters to me I should say it. Like with my Transphobia project. I am Transgender. This matters to me because this is MY LIFE, I know how it is to be picked on for not knowing who you truly are. I only discovered myself last year. Even then theres still so many people who don't know because I am afraid of being made fun of. I remember the day I was made fun of this year like it was yesterday. I got to my fifth hour a little late because of it. I saw this group of at least six jocks walk past me, and I hear "Whisper whisper TRANNY whisper" So I stopped and looked at them and said "I know you didn't just say what I thought you just said." To which I got comments right back. Which I will not repeat here. But it was that small mistake that struck my idea to make that project. Get it into peoples heads that WE'RE PEOPLE TOO. We might be different but in all honesty no on is the same.




A person is a person. No matter what Gender, Size, Sexuality. Or all.

Second Project Week 2 reflection

Today I finally got a email back from the principal of Lewis an Clark and I also sent out an Email to the Principal of Schroeder Middle School so I can interview students there. Next is to find out what I need and where I need to be for the interviewing of the kids. For my TED Talk I will talk about Child abuse in family homes because this has intrigued me so much.

Week one reflection project 2

This is my first week reflection on my second project.  What is working for me is I'm getting the website for the Child abuse done and over with. I accomplished a lot this week when I started I made a script for the child abuse video I'm gonna make, I emailed the principal of Lewis and Clark elementary and asked to interview the staff and students.
Next week I'm hoping to be able to interview the students and staff and get a camera for the videoing. One obstacle would be I don't have a camera and I still need permission to interview the students.
