An Interpretation of Ethnic Unity at the University of California, San Diego
I am an Indian American who was born in San Jose, California. Raised in a relatively diverse and accepting community, I have been protected from the harsh existence of ethnic stereotypes that afflict many communities across the nation. Therefore, I plan to dedicate my time to help individuals that are harassed by the status quo of ethnic segregation.
This artwork is inspired by Angela Kong's Re-Examining Diversity Policy at UCSD, which addresses the segregation of the Asian American student population here on campus. An adaptation of UCSD's pie chart documenting the 2015 undergraduate class based on ethnicity, my submission replaces the label for "Asians" to reflect the common conception of the overwhelming population, as perceived by Angela Kong and me.
