Students created a mind map that illustrated and expressed their identity. In the first mind map, the characteristics/identifiers were chosen from provided categories. For example, students had to choose between South Asian and Canadian in one category. In the second mind map, students were given free reign to express themselves in the form of words and/or pictures (no identifiers were provided). This activity was done to illustrate instances when students must choose between prescribed roles and self-chosen ones.
