Hello readers, my name is Thong Nguyen, a senior at Fremont High, Oakland. I'm working on my senior project now and I really need help from you to make my project better and make more sense. I really appreciate your helps. Thank you.
About my senior project, after working on it for a month, I come up with my most updated research thesis: There are so many different perspectives about video games, both positive and negative. So, how does the video game industry really affect people's lives mentally, physically, and economically ?
Reading Native Son, no one can deny the truth that Bigger is a murderer, who killed Mary, a white girl, and also the daughter of his boss, Mr.Dalton.However, thinking about what happen inside Bigger through the book, we can see that it is not completely Bigger's fault that lead to the murder. First of all, Bigger unintentionally killed Mary when he was drunk. A drunk man cannot control his own mind and his own body. He just wanted to shut down Mary's voice so that Mrs.Dalton wouldn't hear her voice. He never though that she would die.
As an Asian student in school, people around always expect me to be smart, and work really hard in everything, that I have to learn things really fast and get high grades in every class. It's because they believe that most Asian students are really good at studying in school. When I get a high grade in class, people keep telling me,"Because you are Asian." Over time, I fulfill this expectation by pushing myself to study harder and harder. I force myself to work more and get higher grade in every class.
For my Senior Project, the topic that I feel very interested in is video games and everything related to video games, like the development of video game industry through the history, and how it contributes to the whole economy of a country, specifically the United States. Also, I want to know how video games positively and negatively affect people's lives in different ways, mentally, economically, physically, so that I can find out how to prevent the negative effects, and take advantage on the positive effects.
Hello, I'm Thong Nguyen. People call me Tommy. I'm an 18 year-old teenager who really loves freedom. I hate when people control my life and force me to do things I don't like. I want to be myself and do everything I want. The funny thing is that people tell me my personality is older than my age, even though I look younger than my age. I'm from Vietnam, a country in South East Asia. My life was completely changed when I left my country and came to the U.S. My life turned into a new page. Now I've lived in Oakland, California for 3 years.
In the film-trailer making group, I'm a film editor. As a film editor, I think I was very successful in my job because I could use all my computer skills and film editing skills to create an impressive product. I really the film trailer that I made. Also, people, who I showed the video to, are very interested in the video and have many positive comments for it. I feel so proud of myself and my group.
When the new superintendent takes office in Oakland Unified, violence is an issue at Fremont High that he/she and the administration of my high school will need to deal with. This is a big problem because violence has been negative affecting the improvement of the school, and also the beliefs, the futures of many kids in Oakland.

I did 65% of my work taking photos for the Photo Essay. When I was doing my work, I had to face some challenges. I took the photos only by myself, so it took a really long time for me to finish taking them. Moreover, because I did the work by myself, so the angles of the photos were not really good. I'm thinking about taking them again. However, because I had some photoshop skills, and also some good ideas in my mind, I could make the photos more beautiful, and more emotional. People would be able to understand, to feel what I want to tell them. That was my advantage.
In my photo essay project. I have to take a list of photos and record my voice, then put everything together in order to tell what happened in one-page long scene in the book Down These Mean Streets. The audiences can see and understand the story by both images and words that I use.
