Thanks for this, Tanya, very interesting angle on migrants not wanting to feel more assimilated or integrated (i’m interpreting based on what you said). I realized when i say My Big Fat Greek Wedding how IS pop culture seems to make fun of ppl who hold on too strongly to their home values, while I as an Egyptian respect Egyptians who maintain their home culture while still managing to integrate (but not assimilate, as in not try to be “the same”). I love what we are doing at edcontexts and I hope it goes towards raising awareness. I’m glad this post resonated with people of all colors and cultures. Love you all 🙂
