Everyday Canyon Vista: I Am A Girl

Everyday Canyon Vista: I Am A Girl from Canyon Echoes on Vimeo.

Hey Mustangs! This is the fourth installment of our video series, Everyday Canyon Vista. Everyday Canyon Vista is a video series all about breaking stereotypes about race, religion, gender, and sexuality in our school. We were inspired by BuzzFeed’s video “I’m Muslim, But I’m Not” and decided to recreate videos within our school with students and faculty.

A stereotype is an prejudiced belief that all people or things within a particular group are identical. With Canyon Vista being such a diverse school, stereotypes are widely used, and the person placing a demeaning label rarely realizes the negative effects their words have on others.

This is one of many videos in our series. If you would like to take part in a video, please email us at [email protected], or fill out the student survey sent to your student inbox. If you’re a teacher, you received an email as well.
