We’re Not Your Model: Dismantling the Asian Model Minority Myth Presented by Sophia Antoun, M.A.
The Ohio State University’s Asian Pacific Islander Alumni society hosted Sophia Antoun (she/her), Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Program Specialist at Ohio State’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion in a discussion of the Model Minority Myth.
The discussion was lively. Participants had several questions ranging from “what is the model minority” to “What are current resources?” We shared our own experiences and discovered how we reacted to being the model minority. As we went through the progression of minorities in the U.S, we saw the pattern of how the model was formed and why.
