One major thing I learned from this unit was the perils of stereotypes. Also, it was a lucky coincidence that I was able to learn about the similar topic in Sociology. After this, I started to think differently. I learned to understand the poors. In the past, I also was one of those people who thought that it was their fault to become poor. I felt ashamed to even think that I had this stereotype, and I tried to influence others to be in poor people’s shoes.
These people have been working hard only thinking about surviving through today. We are blessed to even think about the future. Environment factor was one of the biggest influencer in our lives. We just thought that it was our hardworks that brought us up here. Maybe we wanted to think this way to feel superior over others. I repent to these people who are working even harder than us to survive through the day.
