“I’m An Immigrant, But I’m Not…”

I’m an immigrant, but I’m not to be feared. There are a lot of stereotypes around immigrants, and this video by BuzzFeed touches on some of them. Being an immigrant myself, this video was very relatable. I have been on the receiving end of some of these stereotypes–unfortunately.  This video covers more than just the negative stereotypes bestowed upon immigrants, but also, talks about what immigrants actually contribute to the community and who they actually are. Every immigrant has their own story, and their own path, only thing we have in common is a legal document, so don’t categorize us. We are humans, just like you are.
