Boston University Asian Student Union (ASU) is back with our second annual speaker series on Asian representation: Breaking Boundaries!
The mission of Breaking Boundaries is to shed light on the impact of Asians and Asian Americans in various industries by providing a platform to highlight the pioneers of our community.
Join us for a conversation with:
- Timothy DeLaGhetto, an Asian-American rapper, comedian, actor, and internet personality known for his feature in Wild 'N Out, as well as his presence on Youtube.
- Kane Diep, a Buzzfeed content creator with 16 years of experience in making videos committed to telling Asian-American stories.
- Kristina Wong, a comedian featured on late night shows on Comedy Central and FX, known primarily for her work as an artist, actress, and solo theater performer.
- Ami Park, a Boston University alumna, actress, and Asian-American activist with a passion for social advocacy on issues such as mental health and LGBTQ+ rights.
With minimal representation in society and media, Asians often find it difficult to chase their dreams and seek out sources of inspiration––especially when there are very few stories and role models to follow from our own race. ASU strives to break these boundaries and inspire change.
Doors open at 6:00 PM.
Event starts at 6:30 PM.
