Trump's America: The Class that Brought Me Peace
For Syrian-Muslim Jenna Rifai, Trump’s rise to the presidency led to drastic consequences for her and her family. But after the election, Jenna enrolled in a class called Trump’s America and was surprised to find herself in a room surrounded by Trump supporters. Expecting them to be ignorant and prejudiced at first, Jenna gradually discovered that these people, whom she labeled as “Trump supporters”, actually had a lot to teach her. From these lessons, she urges us to look past the stereotypes and come together as human beings.
