Senior Project Plans

Well, I have always found I am best at doing something authentic and real. My idea for my senior project is to do a documentary. I believe I am good at taking a story and telling it from a certain angle and point of view.

My idea is to do a documentary on distant family members and their story of growing up in America under a Chinese immigrant father. Growing up, the 3 sons and 1 daughter worked in the Chinese restaurant owned by their grandfather in Blackfoot, Idaho. This restaurant transition into a very successful Teriyaki Chicken Booth at the Eastern Idaho State Fair which runs for 10 days a year. I would focus on their immigrant story and how the booth has shaped their culture and family.
