Welcome to the Asian American Dream or AAD for short! Founded in May 2021, we aim to empower underserved (first-generation college attendee, low-income, FAFSA-eligible, attending a non-target school) AAPI undergraduates to realize and achieve their unique vision of the Asian American dream, one that accounts for their lived experiences, career aspirations, and AAPI heritage. Due to the model minority myth, there is a widespread misconception that all Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are inherently well-connected and well-resourced. Through AAD programing, we seek to dismantle the model minority stereotype and uplift the next generation of AAPI professionals through our guiding mission and vision.
The mission of AAD is to provide mentorship networks, professional development training, and career advancement opportunities for underserved Asian American and Pacific Islander undergraduates, with the goal of helping them achieve their unique vision of the Asian American dream.
At AAD, we envision a world where all underserved Asian American and Pacific Islander undergraduates are aware of and have access to mentorship networks, professional development training, and career advancement opportunities to achieve their unique vision of the Asian American dream.
