Identity Text Project
How do I perceive myself in Canada as a newcomer refugee? Identity is constructed by ethnicity, gender, class, nationality (etc.), and its formation is a continuous process shaped by ever-changing life experiences. I attempted to document my identity formation through self-reflexive analysis. I observed four stages that influenced my identity in Canada (Honeymoon phase, frustration period, adjustment period, and acceptance period). My journey from Syria to Canada has made me create my current hyphenated identity and motivated me to question what it means to be Syrian-Canadian.
