UNVEIL THE HIDDEN CULTURES OF ARIZONA
We are graduate students at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University.
As part of a final group project, we are diving into the hidden cultures that reside here in the great state of Arizona. We will be focusing on the Vietnamese, Syrian and Polish communities.
While conducting this project, our group had the opportunity to talk to members of these different communities and discover how they maintain their culture, as well as learn about the different traditions they all have.
