#Inspiration — First Days Project: Sharing stories from South Asians about their first day in the U.S.

This project is definitely one that inspires me! I was able to have a conversation with one of the creators and we spoke about the void of the storytelling that gets passed down in communities of color. The project asks participants to tell a story about their first day in America. These stories are told through text, voice, and video. The project focuses on primary South Asians, but I would love to do a similar project. There is an organization called Densho in Seattle that does something very similar collecting stories about the experiences of Japanese Americans in internment camps during WWII. They also attached curriculum for schools to discuss these issues. Stay tuned, as I build!
