Jeanne and I grew up with similar backgrounds (and many mutual friends), but only recently met in NYC. It was such a joy chatting with her and hearing her thoughts on being Asian American and Christian. I'm excited for you to dive a little into her world and thoughts.
I've known Leo since college being both in advertising (and being my friend's freshman RA). Leo is currently kicking butt in the media world as he was recently honored on the 4A's "100 People Who Make Advertising Great." We had an amazing conversation on diversity in the workplace, media, and how the industry can make the world a better place to live in for everyone. I am super excited to share our lovely chat with you.
I met Yenny my last year of college, but really got to know her better as we both lived in NYC since graduating. She is not only one of the most talented designers/artists I know, but is one of the easiest people to talk to. I'm extremely thrilled to share with you the conversation that we had the other day which is full of insight and honesty. Be sure to check out her work onhttp://www.yennyshim.com/
Yenny Shim is a multidisciplinary designer in New York.
I've known Nabiha ever since we were kids in elementary school. Nabiha's down to earth spirit and compassionate soul has always shown unwaveringly through the years. I'm excited for you to enter into a bit of her story as she shares what it's like to be a Muslim American in today's world.
Nabiha Quadri is a third year medical student at St. Louis University.

I'm from California, the eldest of 3 daughters. I'm Asian American, ethnically Chinese. My parents both immigrated with their families when they were young children. I guess that makes me 2.5 generation.
Talented, passionate, and courageous are a few words I'd use to describe my friend Vania. I'm excited to share her story of how her ethnicity and background have brought her to the person she is today.
Vania Myers is a visual designer based in Brooklyn, NY.
