Description
An essay about Asian Americans being a model minority and my experience as an Asian American at UCSD. Submitted to this Living Archive as part of the course requirements of CAT1, taught by Professor Solomon.
One time my friend asked me for help on a math problem, and I didn't know the solution, to which he responded with: "You're Asian, yet you can't do this?" That was the motivation behind my essay.
