HSSJ Symposium Reflection:


Presentation:
The arts can allow individuals to express themselves in different ways and allow people to engage in Social Justice in a new way other than direct or indirect service. Personally, I feel more connected to advocacy than direct service and I think advocacy through art is one of the many great ways you can make social change.

Showcase:
I especially enjoyed hearing about the research projects from the Program Evaluation HSSJ course. The three I found most interesting were: an Evaluation if the GWstar program, particularly the compensation (or lack thereof) of tour guides, the GW serves program (which i was in the focus group for), and the GW innovation contest and how it helps students who compete in it develop skills professionally.


Panel:
The panel on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women was incredibly interesting, and I would agree that there is a lack of discussion around this topic.
1) Lunch session - I think art plays an important role in social change and we saw that with different students sharing their experiences about immigration through their art. The first speaker said all art is political because it either conforms to the status quo or it challenges it. As someone who creates art in the form of writing and poetry I found this statement fascinating and it gave me something to think about. I also felt a personal connection to their stories as a child of an immigrant. When one student spoke about feeling unwelcome in Russia because he did not "look Russian" or "speak Russian" to their liking it resonated with me because I often feel outcasted from my Dominican family members in DR because of my more Afro-Latina look alongside the fact that I don't speak spanish with the same accent as them.
2) Showcase Session: Which showcase presentation was your favorite and why?

My favorite showcase presentation was the one with the Senior Capstone projects in SMPA. I found it super interesting the way they were able to use their creative talents to highlight important social issues. One of the stories was about an queer bar in Dupont- A League of Her Own, which I really enjoyed how the creator was able to put both a face to an important issue while simultaneously using this bar to talk about the importance of queer spaces for female/femme people. Overall through this presentation, I loved seeing the ways people were able to beautifully tell important stories.
2)Showcase Session: What showcase presentation was your favorite and why?

My favorite showcase presentation was the Video Presentations SMPA 4190 Senior Capstone: Online Journalism Workshop (Instructor: Imani M. Cheers) I thought the capstone videos that the seniors presented were amazing! The video editing was seamless and there was such value in their journalistic storytelling, the power of the story they told drew in the audience and made it feel like we were with them when they were filming. I'm glad that I was able to have the opportunity to see how much work and dedication they put into their final projects.
2) Showcase Session: Which showcase presentation was your favorite and why?

I was presenting for a different class so it was fascinating to see the same students from my class present their findings. One presentation that interested me particularly was about the "Ask Us" desk in Gelman library. I am familiar with the desk but have never used the students there or seen someone using it before. They interviewed the workers there to see just how much students take advantage of their resources. I even got to learn about specific resources I didn't know existed.
