Multicultural Vision Program scholars were asked to reflect on their first year at Iowa State in a creative way. Paulina discusses their experiences as a first-year student in Apparel Merchandising and Design and how Paulina channeled the experiences into a dress entered in the 2021 Fashion Show. See her reflection below. You can enable closed caption as needed.

Todos los hombres y las mujeres no son creados iguales. De Raul

Todos los hombres y las mujeres no son creados iguales. Algunos nacen ricos y otros pobres. Algunos nacen débiles y otros con gran fuerza. Algunos nacen con oportunidades, y algunos nacen con problemas. Es por eso que hay discriminación, lucha y competencia en nuestro mundo. La historia del mundo nunca ha sido bonitas flores y arcoiris. Ha estado lleno de sangre, hambre, violencia y destrucción. Todos nacemos en diferentes entornos, hogares, sistemas educativos, posiciones económicas e influencias externas.

Who I am. Where I’m from. Where I’m going. by Sarah

Being a peer mentor for the Multicultural Vision Program (MVP) has been a learning experience for me. I think that most important things about being a leader are… knowing who you are,  where you’re from, and  where you’re going.   You’d be surprised by the similarities you may share with your peers. I never realized that other people may have experienced that same things as me or identified with similar characteristics or communities.
