Create a mini speech to an audience of those who did or would stereotype you in the same way as well as those who did not.  Start with a short explanation of the origin of the stereotype experience you had and how you dealt with it at the time.  Next, move into how it made you feel and why you hope the audience changes the way they view stereotypes.  Here are some questions to consider:
