To Gabe Rima, a Monte Del Sol Senior, being American cannot be easily defined. With the majority of the American population being a multitude of cultures and identities, he has found that the one thing that makes people America is their relative social privilege. But don’t let that idea get you down, his ultimate message is inspiring and empowering.
In this edition of Audio Revolution! hosts Gabriel Rima and Savannah Chapman-Martinez take you into the depths of identity: What does it mean to be American? Who gets to be American and who doesn’t? What are the freedoms and privileges American’s have? And, do all American’s have those freedoms? And what does it mean to be both American and another ethnicity and/or culture?
Has that ever happened to you when your missing something from your outfit and it feels like all has gone wrong?
Ethan Parrot of Monte Del Sol has. Ethan’s audio montage that encapsulate the feeling of losing an article of clothing was created during Youth Media Project’s Summer Intensive in 2009.
“Stressing” is one of Gabriel Rima’s regular Audio Revolution! segment intended to empower and encourage listeners to think critically and never stop growing entitled, Seeds of Sound. This installment imparts simple and many times overlooked reasons and ways to relieve stress from people’s lives.
