Millennials in their own words
Sarah Pastore in a controlled study with other undergraduate students of ITAL2P98: Italians in Canada and Italy-Canada Relations at Brock University in the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures (MLLC) interviewed millennials from three different ethnic communities in Canada for her study of Ethnicity and Gender Inequality in Sports in Canada.
Her first interviewee is Nikkie Dilidili, who was born in Saudi Arabia to Filipino parents. Her family moved back to the Philippines when Nikkie was five months old and then to Canada when she was twenty-one years old. Nikkie at twenty-five reflects on her experiences living in a Filipino community in Niagara Falls while answering questions about sports in her community.
Sharen Rasathurai is a twenty-year-old Sri Lankan Canadian and is a student at Brock University in the Concurrent Education Program. Sharen is very athletic and grew up playing many sports.
Alessia Pace is a twenty-year-old from St Catherines. She is also a student at Brock University in the Concurrent Education Program and wishes to be a kindergarten teacher. Alessia is Italian-Canadian and a competitive dancer. She also played soccer in her community along with many of her Italian Canadian friends.
Pastore provided her interviewees with the questions of this study. Each person answered the questions and submitted their responses to Pastore. Thus, these recorded interviews are the interviewees’ own words rather than notes taken by the interviewer.
