AAPI Student Retreat

Experiencing the alienating feeling of being Asian American on campus, Esther ran and was elected as co-president of the Asian Student’s Association on campus. Esther and the ASA executive board are working to strategically foster an Asian and Asian American community that is engaged and which explores their diverse identities and experiences through program like Big Sib Little Sib and events like Are you sick of Gangnam Style? Let’s talk about Asians in the Media and Treat Yo Self to Mocktails and a Deep Talk on Beauty Standards. Esther’s blueprint includes a retreat for the Asian and Asian American community on her campus that will focus on building community engagement and connectedness and on developing her peers awareness and skills to advocate for their communities on campus and at home.
