Storyboard Description

Rachel trying to prove that Asians can be dumb.

Storyboard Text

  • A lot of questions pop up in my head when I'm at home. They are usually about why people stereotype me to be smart because of my race.
  • Hi, I'm Rachel. I like to read books, but everyone expects me to be perfect because I'm Asian, but I'm not. I still make mistakes all the time. I'm also human.
  • Why does everybody expect me to get a perfect score? What would happen if I didn't get a good grade?
  • What did you get on the math test?
  • RING!!
  • Of course, you did. You always do.
  • Usually, after we get our scores back, this happens...
  • A+
  • I got 100 percent.
  • What did you get on the history test?
  • Oh.. You did well.
  • RING!!
  • C
  • I got 75 percent.
  • Obviously, I don't want to have bad grades, but people expecting me to always be correct stresses me.
  • I just hope that everyone could be a little more understanding knowing that not all Asians have to be smart.
