The title of my piece is called, “The Others: Culture Clash”. I made it in the form of a personal diary with my picture and the title on the front.

The goal is to show how language, in my case, has helped me prove parts of my identity and how the way I speak has also alienated me.
Please check out a new linguistic exhibit I created with Jesse Wang and Jacob Ardis. It is called Attitudes Across the Ocean. You can visit our exhibit here the release date is Thursday, April 9, 2015.
