As I continue my journey on the terrifying quest to secure my artist visa, I can’t help but to forget to breathe sometimes — to breathe and to keep pushing forward. Sometimes the thing that stops us the hardest is our own selves and our own fear and I often need to remember to release that fear that’s just so prevalent in my life. Everyday I’m working on my fear of failure and not being able to live a full life and accomplish the changes I want for my community— what are some things that you fear?
I’m trying to start an online zine platform for Asian American women & International Asian women to be able to share their art, music, photography, films etc. and I’d love to hear from people out there what they’d like in a platform like that
My first weekend off in two months — and I spend it on Brooklyn rooftops riding flamingos and squirting water at friends. Happy July everybody, stay safe from the rays and lather yourself with SPF (unlike me) Whats everyone else’s July 4th plans?
BACK IN NYC I’m speaking on a panel this Saturday about how small ideas (like @rebel_motion ) can inspire big change through technology today with some other badass immigrant speakers at the IHM Local Action Panel hosted by @fwdus. It’s part of a 48 hour event of the 3rd Annual Immigrant Heritage Month Hackathon held at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering in Brooklyn, NY this weekend @ 2pm. Hope to see some faces there if you can make it and I can’t wait to learn from others ! PC:// @justinjesso#celebrateimmigrants#istandwithimmigrants#womxninfilm#femalefilmmaker#vscocam
