Our Names, Our Identities

Lotus Students and Staff share the importance of respecting names.

March 6, 2023

A few weeks ago, we posted a poll asking students and staff if their names were pronounced correctly at school. We got over 80 responses, with 54% answering no. The idea for this project began because many of us have experienced having our names mispronounced or changed at school. We feel strongly that names are important parts of our identities, whether we chose them ourselves or our families gave them to us on the day we were born. Names contain so much meaning, culture, and pride. Please view the video below to see what fellow students and staff had to say.

    This video is great!! Names are such a vital component of our identity; emphasizing their importance and specificity was beautifully done here.
