Technique: Students fight Asian American stereotypes with I am Not campaign

posted by Randall

Asian American Students Association Georgia Tech“I am not good at math,” read a sign held up by an Asian American student.

Seems like a strange thing to put on a sign. But it’s actually very effective.

Its part of a new “I am not” campaign launched by Asian American students at Georgia Tech, reports the campus publication Technique.

The idea backed by the school’s Asian American Students Association is to empower AAPI students to form their own identity outside the box of stereotypes.

It was inspired by the “I am Harvard” campaign.

“This campaign was a really good opportunity for me, actually. I was able to see stereotypes I had not even considered. It was an interesting  to see what campus has perspective wise,” said Anthony Tsou.
