Description

Using collaborative ethnographic interview and visual research methods, this poster examines the immigration story of Janet Zintambila. Through the integration of preliminary research, discussion, and photography, this project intends to introduce Janet’s distinctive journey within the larger framework of immigration in the United States. This poster first approaches Kenyan immigration to the United States as a whole in order to knowledgably discuss Janet’s story. The remainder of the poster represents three defining points in Janet’s immigration story: national pride, community, and activism, and aims to discuss these points in light of her current status as a naturalized American citizen.
