Visual animation based on TEDxBoise, I Am Not Your Asian Stereotype by Canwen Xu. This talk delivers a common sentiment in the Asian-American community. She effectively points out the dangers of such conformity, especially when those around you expect you to be different, when they think of you within the stereotypical box of "Asian" attributes. Most importantly, she conveys a message that every "human" must follow their own path and stay true to themselves.
