I am a first year student at UCSD majoring in Cognitive Science.
I drew this as part of the reading response for Angela Kong's article, Re-Examining Diversity Policy at UCSD. King Triton in my drawing symbolizes UCSD and the three spikes on his trident hold different minority groups at UCSD. As an Asian myself, I really relate to the model minority myth so I put an Asian boy on top of the highest spike showing how many people put Asians in such position and expecting them to do certain things and how the Asian group is kind of isolated from other minority groups.

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.
