say jerky!

August 25th, 2009

I was featured in the latest issue of Koream Journal, the ultimate source on everything Korean American.

I grew up in a very non-diverse town (I was just one of very few Asians in a graduating class of nearly 800 students!) and ended up getting really involved in Asian Pacific American activism in college. I helped found the oldest Asian sorority in the country at Penn State (founded in 1930!!) , served as the president for a semester, and also was a governing officer of the Asian Pacific American Coalition for a year. So to be recognized by my fellow Asian Americans is a huge, huge honor. I couldn’t be more thrilled!

Thanks Koream Journal for profiling me, and to Ellyn Pak for a fun interview. And of course, my girl Korissa for taking my photo with the dogs!

On newstands now!
