Two cultures same meaning, different story
I come from a mix of two different cultures. My mom's side is from Philadelphia Pa and my fathers side is from Sierra Leone. I said same meaning because family is family and I feel the love and care from both sides is the same.
I love being with both sides of my family ,and I had to learn how to act in the way that the different cultures behaved. When with my dad's side I follow their culture, and with my mom I follow their culture.
I have two different kinds of foods in my room because it symbolizes “African Culture” food and the other symbolizes “american food” Also in my room there is an African American Award on the entertainment system to show accomplishments.
The title of our artwork is “Different Stages”. It means that everyone is different and everyone is developing in different ways and at their own pace. This artwork was inspired by our friendship. For a long time we have been trying to see how we can all be the same, until we realized that we are all at different stages and we came to a conclusion that from our different stages and we will soon grow into our full potential. So we all agreed to draw the a flower growing through its different stages until it was full grown.
Our work is displayed on the right side of the third floor on the blue wall across from the windows. We chose this location because it was an area that was empty, which meant the viewer's attention will be focused on our work.The blue background made the image pop more also.
Before this project, we didn't think very deeply about art. In the beginning, we didn’t think art really had a deep meaning. But now since we experience the critical thought process we understand that art has a bigger purpose than to just be seen. We also learned that we can use our lives as inspiration for our artwork. The way we viewed street art change as well, we no longer just see patterns and bold colors it is now more of a statement trying to be perceived that was carefully thought out and planned.

My name is Raniah and online I am Raniah. Online I appear as myself although some people may disagree. Based on my online appearance, I think people perceive me as Adventurous and Cool. Before posting online I honestly think about what my parents would think if they saw this post/tweet etc. When you share things online the pros in my opinion are you get to relate with people who feel the same way as you ,and you get to talk about personal things with your friends or even complete strangers. The cons are when you share online your watched, not only by jobs, schools but by billions of people with your online identification name. When you put deep thought into the cons of the internet and sharing online it may seem kind of scary. Lack of Control has a big impact on our online accounts in many ways. While approaching a online media website you may run into different problems with others who simply just Lack Control and this sucks for the person on the opposite side of the screen which is in most cases you. The internet comes with responsibilities which all users should respect.
I feel like every action has a consequence and to avoid those consequences be careful. Every business, company, etc should be able to do a social media background check for future employees. I say this because you never know a person's true colors before you actually spend sometime with them. If a person is hiring you to work for them it's likely that they have never met you before, however your social media account has been with you for quite a while. Your social media account is the only source an employer has to figure out what kind of person you are before you begin the job.
Free speech is the privilege we all have to be free to speak our minds about something we like or dislike. Free speech gives us the right to disagree and agree with anything we feel strongly about. Personal feelings are protected. Fighting words, defamation and slander isn't protected. An internet troll is any person that makes other people on Social sites feel unwanted or bad. Internet trolls goals are to devastate others on their free time, It's not many ways we can stop trolling but we can start by ignoring or simply hitting the block button. If you ever decide to post anonymously online, just know there's some pros and many cons. A pro is you might be able to go a little while without others finding out your actual identity. A con is whatever you do can always be tracked by the wonderful sack of numbers by the name of an IP Address.
To keep yourself out of trouble I think you will need these 3 helpful tips.
Respect yourself, and others while surfing any social media site.
Treat others how you would want to be treated.
- Think before you post.
