Our winter quarter general meeting was a joint collaboration with SASA, the South Asian Student Association, in which we discussed the model minority myth. Stacy and Naomi, as well as members from SASA, presented a powerpoint that highlighted the harmfulness of the idea of the “model minority” and the inaccuracy of the term. We then broke out into small group discussions where we talked about our own experiences in how the model minority myth affects us. It was great to see so many people there interested in learning about this topic (and eating samosas)!!
