Pineapple and Immigrants: #NaBloPoMo Day 23
November 23, 2016
Today’s Exit the Echo Chamber challenge was to create an empathy map, which “allows you to tune into another person by considering what that person thinks, sees, hears and feels.”
We are at the ranch for Thanksgiving, so I had my two sisters in law, my mom, and my brother help me with this exercise. Family group project for the win!
We warmed up with empathizing with people who like pineapple on pizza, and then finished with the slightly heavier subject of mass deportation of illegal immigrants.
This was an interesting, thought-provoking exercise, especially given the perspectives of my sisters in law, one of whom is an immigrant and one who is an Australian citizen.
What issue would you choose if you were to complete an empathy map?
