Protecting Cultural References, and Correct Name Pronunciations

Right of Way

Play freely, Say My Name

  • BAD: “Your name is difficult, can I just call you Artie?” (Washing off my culture)
  • AVERAGE: “I won’t even try saying that.” (Fear is holding back your learning)
  • GOOD: “Is that ‘Aree’? Am I pronouncing it right?”
  • BEST: *Making proper research and experience so that you can pronounce all Aree’s correctly*
