Be Prideful About Where You're From
If you’re an immigrant or check another box other than caucasian, there’s a good chance you’ve felt like an outsider at one point or another. From media where representation is still so far behind to being one of the only minorities in your schools growing up, standing alone in your diversity can be lonely and isolating.
But, it doesn’t have to be. Being prideful about your heritage can bring people together and unify groups. Start the conversation with Immigrant Apparel.
Represent Your Heritage
When you represent your heritage you are cultivating an exchange that has a myriad of benefits — you’re embracing your traditions while bringing awareness.
It’s amazing how much of what we recognize as “American” is really just what immigrants have carried over. Apple pie. Its origins are British. How about democracy? This is a government system that was developed in ancient Greece.
When you represent your heritage it only enhances our rich and diverse country.
Honor Your Past
When you honor your past, you foster a new narrative and become the storyteller. It’s not told from the majority’s point of view, but from the point of view of you and your ancestors.
Hold close to your past and honor the struggle of those who came before you.
Wear an Immigrant Apparel t-shirt to honor and embrace your heritage.
Immigrants Make America Great
In the US, we’re all immigrants. And if the Founding Fathers committing treason to break from England isn’t clear enough, there are so many ways that immigrants have made America the amazing nation that it is.
From protecting our nation and serving in the military, creating top-name fashion brands, and obtaining the highest academic accolades to educating future generations, and representing a flourishing entrepreneurial spirit, immigrants are what built America.
Immigrants make America great.
Honoring your heritage is done in so many small, yet powerful ways. It’s correcting people when they get a part of history wrong, sharing meals from your native land, or, in a simple, organic t-shirt!
This is for you — for all walks of life that reside in a foreign land.
