This past fall quarter, KAMP has had three amazing UC San Diego students – Douglas, Aneeka, and Dana – fulfill their service learning hours with us.
On November 19th, they presented their final service-learning project at UC San Diego’s Cross Cultural Center, a workshop exploring the formation of ethnic identity. The workshop began with an ice shaver activity that had students investigate the power of stereotypes. Then Douglas, Aneeka, and Dana showed the first episode of Fresh Off the Boat to spur a large group discussion about what it means to be Asian American. Lastly, the workshop ended with a privilege walk to help students see how complex identity is and how power and privilege are related to how we identify and how society identifies us.
This the second quarter that UC San Diego has hosted a service-learning project with KAMP and it won’t be the last!
