At Iowa State University, the conversations about racism tend to never end. However, this makes sense as the recent campus news tells us, students of color, to be aware. From the vandalism in dorms, racial slurs chalked on the sidewalks, and recently racial tension toward Asians caused by the CoronaVirus 19. With racism happening over and over again to people of color, how do we deal with it? Here are my personal stories along with my personal growth in dealing with racism.

When MSA asked me to write this blog post, I didn’t know where to begin. My name is Harry Nguyen and I’m currently a junior studying business management with a minor in marketing. It only took me up until my third year of college to decide what I wanted to study and I think this is a good starting point to share my experience here at Iowa State.

I grew up in small-town Iowa. It was predominantly white people, so there were not a lot of minorities. You could probably count the number of people of color on both of your hands. In my class, there was one other girl who was from China until another family moved to town in our middle school years.
