Empower Hour: Acceptance at Last: Navigating Through Expectations and Realities as a Model Minority – Mar 4
Posted by Write Away on March 2, 2021
Write Away believes in a digital world where everyone is included and able to express themselves. During each monthly Empower Hour event, our featured speaker leads participants through the life experiences, realizations, and frameworks that led to their success, failures, and overall growth.
Our next Empower Hour event, titled “Acceptance at Last: Navigating Through Expectations and Realities as a Model Minority,” will feature Min Son. Min will share her journey of self-exploration, in which she learned to navigate the expectations placed on her as an immigrant, a child of immigrants, and a Korean American woman. She will share her process of learning to be open to experiences and failures and how she came to redefine success for herself. Min will guide participants in reflecting on the expectations society places on us in connection with our identities, and will coach us in reframing what success and failure mean for us. Min graduated from Ursinus College in 2020 with a Bachelors of Science in Biology and Applied Ethics, and she will continue her education at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, where she plans to start her own nonprofit organization to increase access to oral healthcare for underserved communities.
