I am not your model minority.

Jennifer Ho,
Carrboro, NC.

I’m an Asian American woman and often times in my daily life I’m the only Asian American person in the room, sometimes the only person of color. And it’s exhausting to deal with the stereotypes people have, especially because they think Asian Americans are a successful “Model Minority.” And so I want to dispel that idea and work toward making Asian Americans visible.
