In honor of the Asian Pacific Islander American Heritage Month (APAHM), I will continue sharing activities, festivities of this whole months celebration of rich culture here in my blog. And more fun facts such as 14 Important Statistics about Asian American population – http://www.asian-nation.org/14-statistics.shtml. Starting of with our yesterday’s event organized by Los Angeles City Employee Asian American Association (LACEAAA) which I’m proud to be a part of. Enriching and helping members may you be Asian decent or not, everyone is welcome to learn our culture, food, tradition, accomplishments, and the struggles that our ancestors went through that makes us PROUD to be called Asian Pacific Islander American.
The event was held at the Golden Dragon Restaurant located in the heart of Chinatown. The attendance was close to 90 which includes our guest speaker of the day – Alexander Kim, he’s the Senior Advisor for Councilmember David Ryu representing Council District 4. His story resonates to all of us immigrants, his parents struggles in order to give them a better life. His own struggles which leads him to aspire to give back to the community, may you be an immigrant or not. He shared that if you are willing to achieve your goals however hard the journey may be, your family, your community, everyone will benefit from that.
