In project one, I spoke on how I encountered and endured stereotypes as a bilingual student and immigrant community member. I describe how our education system fails to teach bilingual students the essential and critical equipment they need to become proficient in their native tongue and English. In project five, I elaborate on the journey and how I centralized my literacy issue, financial literacy. I start with a broad interpretation of how English literacy in English is hard to maintain, especially as a bilingual student. With a lack of support, we make up statics of being a minority that creates…

Literacy Issue Journey Interview

On October 30,2020, I had the opportunity to interview a fellow peer Chistina Ngo. Christina Ngo who is currently a freshman in San Jose State University, attends the same English 1A. Class as I. We had to encounter two different interviews, Our first was more professional in which we described our project topics in-depth. The second interview illustrates more insight of one another’s life story , and our personal connection between our first-hand encounterments with such literacy topics in our community. And ways it defined our literacy…


As a bilingual student and member of the Immigrant community, I have endured a few stereotypes from both grounds, which have impacted how I define literacy in English today. Our education system in America is known to be very old fashioned. Instituted back in the 1600s for students who are Mongolians. Since the first immigration wave in the 1900s, there has been an increase of bilingual students in our school system. However, our education system is not equipped with the materials or certification to teach bilingual students both languages without losing one language. These stereotypes are seen through our education…


In my Autoethnography, I described the stereotypes I encountered in both the education system and my immigrant community. Describing how the native speaker is provided no support in their journey in developing English proficiency. I state an extensive interpretation of the impact of Financial Literacy on our economy. Stating the issue of financial literacy in economics is seen through the decision made by both the citizens and government, especially America’s economy. Since COVID-19 started, our economy had to shut down for the sake of society’s health. From there on, the decision to reopen the state economy relied on the government…


In my “Autoethnography”, I describe the different types of stereotypes that bilingual students face in the immigrant community and education system. Being a minority group member, the immigrant community, I have experienced several stereotypes from different sides in my life. However, I’m not the only one. On October 30, I had the opportunity to interview my fellow peer member in English 1A, Chistina Ngo. Christina Ngo is a freshman at San Jose State University that is currently majoring in Biological Science. Christina Ngo was born in San Jose, California, attended Andrew Hill High school in the East Side Union High…


In my Autoethnography, I described my encounters with stereotypes in my household and the American Education System. How loved ones who sacrificed everything and migrated to provide us with an educational opportunity expect bilingual students to become fluent in English. The outdated American education system is unofficially equipped with non-certified staff to support native speakers. In my project two, I discovered that literacy in English proficiency support isn’t the only essential skill our education system fails to teach the American student. However, I missed centralizing my faultline. So in Project three, I incorporate the faultline in Orange County, Los Angeles…


My progress in defining literacy has been a lot. I have learned it all my life in all my school years and the different types of learning I have gotten throughout my school years. As a bilingual student and a member in an immigrant community I have seen how the education system has failed to educate us in the importance of literacy . In school, growing up as a bilingual student, we were taught that progression in english was to be treated like any other academic. This perception of literacy , they implied , portrayed its impact, in my experience…


Covid-19 pandemic has created an impact on our economy with multiple cris. Either health or financial wise. With such critical situations and touchy subjects our nation’s governors have taken in debate on how they will reopen our nation’s economy based on oublis and sciet response. . Such a topic has aroused an argument that has divided the nation in what is more valuable when it comes to the economy. Division in the nation has taken it upon themselves that each state is allowed to reopen however and whenever they want.Some states have reopened to fix their economy financially no matter…


It knows deliberately that In the United States of America school education doesn’t enforce a form of education of Financial Literacy in Economics. Financial literacy in Economics is the basic knowledge one citizens need to functionally work in the economy itself. Financial Literacy provides a benefit for those who are provided with the educational resources. Financial Literacy in citizens has been proven to create a more effective citizen than those that aren’t educated in Financial Literacy. If Financial Literacy would be invoked in the education system, American students would be provided skills and knowledge in; investing, management, debt, saving etc.The…
