Thank you and couldn’t wait for more

Dear Alice,
I am so glad I took a class in college called Asian American Women. The book we use is Asian American women and men by Yen Le Espiritu. She has mentioned you in the preface. I am about to go to UCLA for East Asian Studies and the words your dear professor has given to you are really inspiring and engaging for my future journey too. I don’t know if you will ever read this or continue to upload more. I just want to say thank you and wish you all the best in this special time.

Can’t wait for more!

I am including this episode as required listening for my Intro to Asian American Studies class to begin a discussion about who is considered part of Asian American experiences and communities and who is not- and an example of the brave step of telling your own stories.
