Imagine you're in a different country with no language. People chatter, snigger and you have no idea what they're saying. 

Your cold plastic lunchbox calms you with sweat on your hands. The smell of rubbish gives you a headache. Why are you here? When is it going to end? 

New Zealand has a big problem. 10% of the people who come here is experiencing prejudice. 55% of the migrants who come here feel judged on their skin or their who It's possible to fix it.

Prejudice is when you label someone using sexism racism and more. For example this boy asked a girl “Do you have a bomb in your lunch?” She came back offended and didn't want to go back to school.  That is being prejudice labelling someone just because they're from Iran. The cause of this is from parents friends or TV.

To make people feel more welcome you can smile and start a conversation or even invite them for a meal. Just doing something small can make them feel welcomed it can make a huge impact.   

Sniggering, laughing or pointing at them makes them stink and makes them not want to come again. It's important to make migrants feel welcome because if you can do all this, you can make the future a much more happy place.
