The Restraints Of Stereotypes

by Ishaan Bajpai

In this speech, I try to explain how societal and mental “restraints” can be broken. Using an illustration of a person breaking away from their restraints using their mental strength, I try to show that stereotypes can be restraints to a person’s success. I use an adapted example from Minor Feelings to explain the impacts of stereotypes. While offering a solution, I use Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s idea of false narratives and how you can break away from stereotypes by understanding your roots and culture.
