For my First Inhale, I viewed a movie called Mean Girls. Mean Girls is a high school comedy, so it is bound to be filled with lots of archetypes and stereotypes. I watched this movie time and again to analyze how archetypes are used in the movie and why they are used to enhance the story. I showed this through a video where I spoke about how I found the answers to these.

Additionally, to further prove the universality of archetypes I examined an Egyptian Myth. I established the similarities in archetypes between the myth and Mean Girls. This can show that stories from different places, cultures, and even time periods share the use of Archetypes.
