The Poster Monday spot of the day “New American Dream” belongs to Derya Didem Kundakçı from Antalya, Turkey.

She loves reading, and travels to fuel her creativity and transpose her experience into her works.
On January 30th 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump signed an executive order to keep refugees from entering the country for 120 days. Under the order, immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim nations cannot enter the U.S. for three months. The poster “New American Dream” speaks out against this blatant discrimination against Muslim countries and the proposed wall between Mexico and the U.S. “I live in a Muslim country and this situation is against equality and it disturbs me. I wanted to show people in the world how Donald Trump misuses power.” says Derya.
An inspiring and clear message from Derya!
