My project is a dive into assimilation in my family. I am half Syrian but sometimes I do not feel like I am because of the effort by my ancestors to assimilate. Its hard to try to reconnect with my culture too because of 911 which my father was in, and the civil war taking place in there. I feel like the only part of my culture left is the food.
