I grew up in Ann Arbor thinking it was the most diverse and open-minded place, and frustrated that it was an echo-chamber. My biggest fight in high school was asking for Diwali to be a school holiday. But coming to the University of Michigan was a wake-up call. It wasn’t as diverse as I thought. People were not open-minded (I mean, we were entertaining bringing Richard Spencer). Most people I met had privilege they did not realize they had, and I had built myself into a community I did not enjoy very much.
