"I AM CYC" Lettering

One of the things I love most about Houston CYC is that it helps kids find their identities. Many Asian-American kids grow up in an area where there aren't many - or any at all - kids like them, so they've felt like outsiders their entire lives. Suddenly, they come to CYC and are immersed in Chinese culture and surrounded by lots of kids with similar upbringings. They finally feel like they belong.

I came up with this lettering piece to celebrate not only newfound identities, but also the newfound pride and confidence which comes with knowing that they're not alone.
