At this point in my life, I can only feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude. Gratitude for the people around me now. Gratitude for the people that will be with me in the future. And an immense gratitude for the people in the past that have taught me and strengthened me to be who I am now. I am indebted to my fellow student activists, who guided me into the struggle for love and justice for our communities. My passion blooms from the conversations that sought to turn dreams into reality. Pursuing the entertainment industry to push for greater Asian American representation is a monumental task to turn into a career, and I would never be able to do it alone. My world is in the people that I meet. And so my gratitude surrounds them as well.
