    Jin's Bio:
    Hi, there! I'm Jin, and I am a passionate, talkative, dessert fanatic. Poems, good books, coconut water, and action movies make me happy. If we ever meet in person, you'll definitely hear me before you see me. You'll want to ask how many energy drinks I've had, but the answer will always be zero.

APAA Event

 

Ticket for APAA Cultural Night

Ticket for APAA Cultural Night

Tonight, I had the opportunity to attend the Asian Pacific American Association’s Cultural Night event at UMD with the CSS Asian Student Union. The event was titled “Bridging the Gap” with the theme of unifying the various Asian cultures, as well as expanding the understanding of Asian cultures in Ameria.

There was really good food, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that they had several vegan/vegetarian options. Most of the evening was filled with performances that included dancing to multiple songs from different countries, singing in different languages, martial arts, and instrumentals. Each song had a story that was connected to bridging different cultures. The dances were filled with cultural appreciation and variety.

The best part about the night was getting to spend more time with my ASU family and celebrating our Asian heritages together. Although, the dessert was pretty good, too.
