"Ashley Mei Gong for President, 2036"
(Come see Ashley speak at Crushing The Myth (07), Oct. 12th in LA)
"This past summer I was crowned Miss Teen Santa Monica. I’m running for Miss California Teen USA 2020 in hope of becoming the first Chinese American to do so. I’ve starred in four feature films and just wrapped a short film that I wrote, directed and produced....
...And from there, my future will be in politics as well. Now, I heard you have to be at least 35 years old in order to run for President so I’m hoping by November 2036, I won’t be the first Asian American in the White House, but simply the next.
So, you ask me what power is. Power is influence. And that comes with having your story told and heard."
