Description
I'm a student who has a firm belief in changing the world for the better, seeking improvement through science and philosophy, research and emotion. Taught to be a positive example for everyone, I've decided to further my attempt at change through my work in both research and motivational messaging.
After understanding the deeply intricate situation that minority students face at the UC campus, I decided to create a brief poem and record myself reading said poem that captures the complication between the stereotypical "Model Minority" of academia and the "Yellow Peril" of American socio-economics. The overall notion that the Asian American minority and their inclusion at the UCSD campus as both a separate entity treated as both greater than their fellow peers and lesser for their supposedly hyper-visibility is one that creates confusion among those that fail to realize the duality, and it is through my poem that I hope to shed some light on such issue, the way I see it at UCSD.

For the Culture, Art, and Technology (CAT) 1: Migration Narratives in the Sixth College writing program taught by Amanda Solomon in the Fall of 2016, students were asked to think about how they view the current campus climate and respond to the fourth chapter of Angela Kong's dissertation, "Re-examining Diversity Policy at University of California, San Diego: The Racial Politics of Asian Americans" Thesis (Ph. D.)--University of California, San Diego, 2014.
