You played it so nostalgically too, @ajrafael. 🙏🏼 ✨ 🎶 honored to be part of this medley comprised of songs by #aapi artists from days of yore. (check it out on his youtube) • it’s a humbling thing to be part of a time (and community) when all we had was that spark in our eyes — carving a new path that not many has really paved for us before (as far as asianam music is concerned). cheers to all of us who still strive to inspire the world with music & other gifts that we’re given. #aapiheritagemonth#youtubers#asianam#asianamericanpacificislanderheritagemonth

I am a proud samoan woman🇼🇸 i am originally from western samoa and endured a long road to be here in the u.s, but it was well worth it.
i am overjoyed at the improving amount of representation polynesians have in this world right now. i know it has just begun, and i hope to be part of the ever growing number of people representing polynesia in the media very soon. fa’a samoa #aapiheritagemonth#samoa

🎉🏮 come celebrate asian american & pacific islander heritage month with us at the “asian supermarket” photo exhibit tonight at 1250 w augusta from 7-9 pm curated by the incredible @jrvs.km! ❤️ i won’t be there tonight sadly but my a.r.t. will so go say hi and take a selfie or something 🏮🎉
This month, i’m giving away my second advance copy of song of the crimson flower!
song is a stand-alone ya fantasy set in the same universe as fotl and kingdom. it’s about a minister’s daughter named lan who makes a snap judgment about a poor apprentice named bao, landing him in hot water with a witch. together, they must go in search of a cure for his enchantment, but it will take them to a dangerous battleground where a walled city led by a mysterious woman threatens the kingdom’s newfound peace.
at its heart, it is a love story about first impressions and second chances, and how sometimes people need to fall apart before they fall together. i hope you guys love lan and bao’s story! book is out november 5!

Appreciate @frntofficesport for helping to shed a light on the lack of diversity in newsrooms.
according to data from the u.s. census bureau, less than 5 percent of announcers, in any industry, are asian, while 73.5% are white and 17.3% are black.
