The mission of #NotTheSame is to raise awareness and to break the "model minority" myth that assumes all young Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) are successful and have unlimited access to college and opportunities. This campaign is inspired by the unheard AAPI stories of homelessness, poverty, refugee struggles, bullying and prejudice.
The campaign is driven by the Asian & Pacific Islander American Scholarship Fund (APIASF), the largest non profit provider of scholarships to AAPI students. To date, APIASF is distributed over $100 million in college scholarships to students across the nation and Pacific Islands.
