Mission Statement: ShareStation is a desk that allows two users to work at the same time generating communication and interaction. The common activities of the parent and child in the Asian American society, usually executed separately, would be merged redefining the work and study experience. This new interaction would strengthen the family bond, and support the child through the difficult teenage years.
Problem: According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Asian American women ages 15~24 have a higher rate of suicide than Whites, Blacks, and Hispanics in the same age group. Asian American youths are overly stressed for many reasons with family pressure being a main cause. The generational and cultural gap between Asian American teenage children and their Asian immigrant parents has made family communication challenging causing even more stress during the difficult years of adolescence. A better understanding between child and parent is the most essential need that is seemingly hard to approach due to a lack of interactive and communicative opportunities.
