Pulse

This visual poetry project is dedicated to the victims of the Pulse massacre who lost their lives during a simple night out with loved ones and strangers, forever embedded and united in history on that tragic night.

Asian Privilege

It does not exist. There’s your answer, there is no such thing as Asian privilege.  If there was, then my being Asian would be seen in the same light as someone’s whiteness.  I would get job offers, leadership positions, educational opportunities, etc. because of my being Asian.  But in reality, that does not happen.

Your Life Purpose

I will make an exception from my activism/advocacy-charged posts to write a little bit about our mission in life.  While some people are meant to be advocates, others are meant to be artists, while others are meant to be lawyers, and others bankers.  The truth is that all of us are a little different even […]
