I Am Sahra Nguyen, a 1st generation, Vietnamese American, daughter of refugees, and Founder/CEO of Nguyen Coffee Supply. Today, I'm here to talk about Vietnamese culture, anti-Asian violence, how to be an ally and activism in celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month (APAHM). Business
EDIT: Thank you for joining this Reddit AMA and asking wonderful questions! Until next time, you can learn more about us at http://nguyencoffeesupply.com!
Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month is a celebration of the unique heritages, cultures, and complexities that comprise the Asian American community. Asian Americans are not a monolith. We have been in the U.S. for a long time and we've been as integral to the foundation of this country as well.
I'm here to talk about culture, identity, activism, and share my perspectives as the daughter of refugees from Vietnam. In the wake of #StopAsianHate and our collective consciousness to address racism and violence against the Asian and Asian American community, I believe one of the most critical things we can do right now is understand the unique, complex and nuanced experiences of Asian Americans as people. Ask me anything about Asian American culture, history, identity, politics and activism!
