May News: Crushing The Myth in NY
Crushing The Myth at Asia Society
We had a great time at Asia Society! Thank you to Christine Hsieh and Ami Li for hosting us and Rock The Boat Podcast hosts Lynne Guey and Lucia Liu for co-presenting.
If you weren't able to attend, check out all the Crushing The Myth Speakers here. They talked about searching for birth parents, walking on the UCONN basketball team, an intimate story about a bike thief, and much more!
It was splendid.

Hapa Mag is a publication by Hapas, for everyone.
Here at Hapa Mag, we believe that the word Hapa celebrates our unique identities. Throughout its history, "Hapa," has taken on different meanings for different people. It originated from the Hawaiian pidgin word for "half," and for many of us, it has come to mean that you're part Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, and/or Asian.
To be Hapa is to be a part of a diverse and growing community with many perspectives. We hope to capture these mixed stories and experiences within each issue of Hapa Mag. Read all about it here.
