Where: Friends Free Library
Join GFS and the Friends Free Library for a film screening of a documentary produced by junior Steven Pu about identity, culture, education, opportunity, and acceptance.
Steven's film, The Model Minority, explores his own issues with identity as a Chinese student studying in America and highlights the experiences and perspectives of others. He hopes this film will create awareness and dialogue, help students who struggle with their identity, and promote intercultural understanding. The film recently won an award at the Philadelphia Youth Film Festival and FilmSlam Festival.
Steven joined GFS through the school's International Student Program (ISP). After the screening, Steven, his host mother Carol Rawlings Miller, and Coordinator of International Student Life Penka Slavova will discuss ISP and the value of bringing together students in learning from across the globe.
Our Lunchtime Chat series was developed in recognition of our blog, Irony of A, which seeks to share ideas and perspectives about teaching + learning.
