Semester in KA

9 12 2009

This year has been great. Coming into the class with little to no knowledge of Filipino culture other than working at Target Serramonte and Target Colma for the past three years, I was ready to learn a lot. We started off with a little Filipino history and the moved into social problems with Filipinos, specifically in San Francisco. My volunteer work opened my eyes to a whole other world of Filipino filmmakers and the depths of their work. My favorite in class activity was writing down the stereotypes because it really showed how people viewed different ethnic or “specialized” groups of people. I had a lot of fun and definitely would recommend the class to other people.
