I hope to develop is a interactive and expressive space where minorities impacted by discrimination can communicate with others about their experiences

Project: The Puksta Project I hope to develop is a interactive and expressive space where minorities impacted by discrimination can communicate with others about their experiences; the implementation of a community like this allows minorities a source of support from other with similar struggles.

 

Inspiration: What inspired me to choose this Puksta Project was a community event that I attended recently this summer. It was amazing the impact someone’s story could have on a group of people. Everyone built relationships from the shared experiences.

 

Future Plans: What I hope to accomplish with my community engagement work is to make people aware of the micro-aggression present in all areas of life for certain people. I want people to be able to communicate their stories and share them with others in a safe environment.
