Description
An American born Vietnamese student from San Jose.
Asian students in America are taught that all Asians, no matter their circumstances are, expected to be smart. For those who meet rise to the top of their grade, this belief is a source of pride. For those who are mediocre, this belief is a burden that criticized them. For all of us, the belief in the model minority creates a constant fear of slipping grades, letting grades rule our lives.
