寻根追萝 (Discovering Our Roots, Chasing Dreams)
Category: Middle School 2017
Video Subject & Artist Statement (this may be publicly posted):
We want to trace our family roots in China. Creating this Youth Voices video made us believe that we deserve to visit China, believe in China’s cultures, and motivated us to trace our roots. Our ancestors inspired us to wonder why they would leave their homes in China and open the new opportunities they wanted. The music in the video gave us a taste of China even when we can’t be there. We also interviewed our teacher, Lori Chao, who emigrated from Taiwan. We asked her what it felt like when she arrived and why she moved to San Francisco. We wanted to share what comes to our minds when we wonder about China and what we would do if we have the chance to go.
