    Post Paradigm

    Is this a good example of paradigm in my life? Thank you

    I went to a new country to have a better life, but later I realised that it was even more difficult to find the peace I wanted. The most I missed in the new country was dignity.

    The best way I can describe "paradigm" to you is through examples.

    "Barry Tilkens turns the paradigm of the disinterested, state-appointed defense attorney on its head."

    "Michael Jackson's Thriller established a new paradigm in pop music videos."

    A paradigm is the masterpiece that embodies an entire field of art. It's the stereotype that we associate with an entire group of people.

    You could say that your story is a paradigm of the American immigrant experience.
