Awesome Asian American Women dinner

In the beginning of 2016, I posted this online on Twitter and Facebook. This was about 4/5 months after I moved to LA, but finding my “tribe” has been something that I’ve been on the lookout for, for as long as I can remember.

On My Radar: MAKERS

March is Women’s History Month (in case you didn’t know :)). What better way to celebrate than to share the stories of women who have built the past and shaped the world? CEO’s, designers, activists, athletes- you name it- are featured on this site I came across: Makers.com. Some you may have heard of. Some may be completely new to you. I watched these videos while…
