Shoutout to FASA sa UP and the amazing Yuri Hernandez, the Diversity and Inclusion Program Coordinator at the University of Portland for hosting my book talk. Coming back to Portland to celebrate FAHM and come back to FASA which was just getting off the ground when I taught at UP, was pretty awesome. It was great to see UP alumni who were students in my past courses and see how far they have all come. It was my privilege to remind these young leaders that our Filipino American history is in their hands. I trust that they’ll make us proud!
