Description
Asian Americans are perceived as model minorities who no longer need assistance or diversity resources. This exclusion contributes to how underrepresented the different ethnic groups are. As a Cambodian-Vietnamese student I understand how we are grouped together as one, however, I recognize our individual differences in which others might not.
The undergraduate enrollment statistics present Asians at being the highest percent of ethnicity enrolled at UCSD. As an incoming Asian American student I thought that I could easily feel this sense of belonging. However, I did not consider the several ethnic groups of Asia and how much different I would still be and feel amongst them. The photo above symbolizes how we are grouped as one but are still composed of unique characteristics as individuals.
