As an Indian-American, I feel that Netflix Original "Never Have I Ever" inaccurately represents my culture–yet most media outlets covered this show as an advancement in Asian-American representation. One of my favorite parts about journalism is that through writing, we can share otherwise unaddressed perspectives. Through this article, I was given the opportunity to do simply that.
- After watching the entire show, I created a list of what I liked and disliked about the show in terms of both education and entertainment.
- In the article, I made sure to address counter-claims that can be made against my argument, along with rebuttals to those counter-claims to instill ethos and garner credibility.
- I submitted this piece to Dear Asian Youth, an Asian youth empowerment group, to expand my audience base.
Posted on the Dear Asian Youth Instagram and reaching 1,547 accounts who were not previously following the Dear Asian Youth Instagram, I felt incredibly proud of my work and its ability to foster discussion. Additionally, by providing a space for me to write out my thoughts, my love for journalism was further reinforced.
