My indigenous ancestry has been erased
Artist Stereotypes Redefined
Go with the flow.
I never grew up with people who looked like me. Mixed people need representation - it's scary, but I'm doing this for those who came after me. It is bold to be the only person in a room like yourself.
Because it's awesome!
I like having my photo taken.
Due to being in a workshop, I wanted to see what was going on. I do like being labeled as an artist as it has been a big part of my identity. Being Asian-American has always caused me a crisis, which "is" my identity, but something I struggle with.
