VIDEO: On Irish and American Stereotypes

Jul 4, 2014 8:36:00 AM / by Stephanie Sadler

Emily Schoepflin is CAPA's Official Vlogger for Summer 2014, sharing her story in weekly CAPA World videos. A D'Youville College student from Buffalo, New York, she is studying abroad in Dublin this term.

In her 4th of July vlog, Emily explores first the stereotypes she previously held of the Irish and how they compare to reality now that she's studying abroad in Dublin. Then she takes her camera out to the streets and talks to some strangers who share their own stereotypes of Americans and whether these are true of Americans they've actually met. She also asks them where they've been in the States, if anywhere, and where they would like to go.
