Alison Carlock
22:02
Good morning from Coastline College!
Amy La
22:47
Exhausting!
Maria Abutin
23:33
I feel like I have to be more vigilant; not just for my own safety but especially for my parents and in-laws who are elderly
Christine Romeo
23:41
I find myself avoiding thinking too deeply about AAPI hate crimes. So much trauma in the air right now anyway. Especially George Floyd's murder. AAPI hate crimes is more salt to the wound
Maria Abutin
24:23
But I have been meditating more which helps with my stress
Omoefe Edhere
24:39
So frightful going out this days
Maria Abutin
26:27
Yes it does make a sound
Marian Edelbrock
26:31
depends how it was felled - could scream in anguish
Marie Maghuyop
26:38
Hi y'all! Marie here from San Bernardino Valley College
Marie Maghuyop
26:45
No it does not make a sound
Josean Rosales
26:47
Yes, it does make a sound
Maria Abutin
27:03
We can see the effects of it
Marian Edelbrock
27:19
the other trees know - they communicate through their root structures
Tom Choe
27:38
just by nature of reality. We don't have to be physically present to know what a tree falling sounds like. The reality of it falling, and it's sound, is still true
Marian Edelbrock
29:02
problem is some people want the tree to fall
Maria Abutin
30:01
Tom, that is the best way to put it
Sarah C.
30:23
It seems to mainly be targeting the elderly
Josean Rosales
30:45
I wonder why?
Marian Edelbrock
30:49
defenseless?
Maria Abutin
31:12
Because the elderly won't and can't fight back
Carly Smith (she/her)
31:17
yes, the recording with the powerpoint will be available to attendees, and also uploaded to the Vision Resource Center and the CCC Health and Wellness Website
Josean Rosales
32:42
It is serious because students mental health can be affected. They might feel scared to attend college due to violence against their community
Amy La
33:16
Or even scared to leave their own home, etc.
Marian Edelbrock
33:53
speak out
Linda Liu
34:13
show up for them
Josean Rosales
34:16
An ally means to support your students, be there for them, provide resources
Maria Abutin
34:17
it means walking with us through campus
Christine Romeo
34:18
amplify BIPOC voices
Arien Reed
34:21
Address conscious and unconscious bias in ourselves and others because we care about the AAPI community
Alison Carlock
34:40
Offer support and resources the best we can
Carly Smith (she/her)
42:42
As a reminder, if you have questions for Dr. Kao, please use the q and a box so we don't lose your question in the chat. Thank you!
Christine Romeo
50:35
knowing what I know now, I regret going straight to Univ. :P
Maria Abutin
53:28
Yes, I was born in Philippines and came to the US at 9 yrs old. I was expected to speak Tagalog at home and English at school. I was growing up in Rosemead at that time
Christine Romeo
58:02
this seems to be a big issue. we know that our students are not connecting with our tutors or the library. I too didn't use them when I was a student.
Josean Rosales
59:40
I work with international students and sometimes I do get frustrated because they wait until the last minute to so things
Gabrielle Meyer
59:53
Shame
Christine Romeo
01:00:11
I didn't believe that they would have tutors that can help in the field I was struggling in. say, theatre arts. I also didn't want to waste the tutors time.
Alison Carlock
01:00:23
Students apologize for asking for help... I tell them that it is my job to help!
Maria Abutin
01:00:24
Not feeling understood
Josean Rosales
01:00:26
For example, they have to meet with me prior to registering for classes and many of them wait until the last minute
Christine Romeo
01:00:55
i need to self reflect on that. not entirely sure
Joshua Hernandez
01:01:04
When I was a student I volunteered to be a language partner with international students only very few of the students would commit to getting help from their peers.
Josean Rosales
01:01:07
I get the same thing, they say sorry for bothering me and for asking help
Josean Rosales
01:01:22
I tell them that I am here for them and to support them
Omoefe Edhere
01:01:35
As an international student myself sometimes we feel bad when we are not well understood.
Gabrielle Meyer
01:01:56
Would you say it's conditioned in family structures to not ask for help?
Maria Abutin
01:02:00
It is hard to ask for help when you see others needing more help
Omoefe Edhere
01:03:03
Exactly
Maria Abutin
01:03:45
Yes, in the Philippines, it is very much that way. It's called "nakikisama" which means to just go along.
Erin Dilley
01:04:34
While questions are encouraged in education in the US, I also think there is a stigma regarding types of questions for needing help rather than questions about the information being taught
Christine Romeo
01:05:17
yes, i can see that @Erin. we have a food pantry, but how many don't ask to sign up for it
Maria Abutin
01:11:58
there is still this notion of "saving face" and I do think that this is part of the reason why they do not ask for help. Asking for help means that they are deficient in some way.
Carly Smith (she/her)
01:13:01
if you would like to be unmuted to share, please raise your hand and I can unmute you
Alison Carlock
01:13:17
Yes, more than before because our office has worked to be accessible in so many different ways.
Alison Carlock
01:14:38
Set up a Canvas shell with resources, virtual office hours outside of the usual 8-5, texting, video meetings, community check ins, etc.
Alison Carlock
01:15:06
Community check ins in both English and Vietnamese
Gabrielle Meyer
01:15:45
Our college systems, especially in this area, are about individualism and finding one's own path and expression and finding more community based on interest . Growing up in Asian countries with such a different view of honor and obedience I can see why students who are experiencing the CSU culture wouldn't understand the amount of freedom there is to speak out, ask for help and be vulnerable. They may not know or trust how rewarded those actions are in the College setting here. How would you instill that trust and cultivate a more open space for them?
Carly Smith (she/her)
01:22:10
if you would like to speak, please leave your hand raised so I can unmute you!
Carly Smith (she/her)
01:22:12
thank you!
Doc Rivera
01:24:56
This contact and way of presenting is awesome. thankyou must go...
Maria Abutin
01:27:03
I understand, but we also have to realize that with the expectations they have from their parents, asking for help is shameful.
Maria Abutin
01:28:14
Yes, I found myself having to read something 3x to understand
Christine Romeo
01:28:47
ok, this resonates. "Am I doing this right?" As kids - we were told what to do. We get to college and suddenly we're supposed to know "what to do" all on our own. Expecting guidance from specific individuals...like guidance counselor...but reality is its a community on campus that works together to help.
Maria Abutin
01:28:58
And I found that reading something out loud and learning that I am an auditory learner.
Maria Abutin
01:32:09
Also, this generation of students is afraid of judgment, and now having the layer of being Asian, it can be really difficult.
Maria Abutin
01:35:41
And dad asks, "why not 100"
Maria Abutin
01:36:04
yes, the feeling of never being good enough
Maria Abutin
01:37:14
I've had to adopt the thinking of progress over perfection
Maria Abutin
01:37:27
Yes, so true
Christine Romeo
01:37:27
yes! I clearly was at fault for not studying hard enough. reality is later in life realizing that I can't learn off a textbook. talking it out is how i learn.
Maria Abutin
01:40:20
Christine, I am the same - I learn by talking and hearing things out.
Amy La
01:40:23
Thank you.
Maria Abutin
01:40:42
