This art piece was made to spread awareness and to stop Asian hate crimes all over the world. In 2021, I experienced my very first public hate crime on school grounds by another classmate. I was asked to photograph and volunteer for a class. A student came up to me asking about my work experience and position at Augsburg University then spoke out to say that I don’t belong in the course because I am not of Black/African American descent and mock my position. I hope you all can take my piece & experience to stop Asian Hate Crime.
