Beneath the Surface
I am a first-year, international student from Taiwan. I, although went to an American education-based school, didn't really interact with a group of people as diverse as that of the UCSD community. This has led me to reflect on how I should interact with people who are different from me.
The drawing tries to portray how the people of UCSD possess a multitude of qualities and differences that one generally can not see on the surface. Having only been at UCSD for 9 weeks, I have come to realize that a lot of people here, including me, don't really take the time to get to know people on a deeper level. This has led us to make assumptions about others that may not necessarily be true, which may have led to even further misunderstandings. And such an idea is what I wanted to portray with my drawing.
