Resilience in Asian Youth

This study aims to identify unique supportive resources for Asian American youths’ wellbeing. We expect that you will be in this study for 30-60 minutes. You will be asked to complete a 30-40 minute online survey and/or join a 1-hour interview to answer questions about your daily life experiences. You may choose to complete the survey, the interview, or both. If you choose the survey, we will send you a link to complete the survey online. If you choose the interview, we will contact you to schedule a time that is convenient for you. You may choose to join the interview on Zoom or UCF main campus. By contributing your knowledge, your response will help us understand Asian youth’s daily life experiences and develop culturally appropriate social services to promote young Asians’ well-being.
