It’s a bitter sweet announcement — bitter because we’re sad to say good-bye to our bloggers, but sweet because of their trailblazing efforts to dig up, pitch and write stories that matter to young AAPIs – immigration, identity, organizing and service – has been amazing.
Our Generation 2 bloggers – Josh Joh-Jung, Chris Ly, Joyce Yin and David Cho – started their social media journey in April with a 2-day training in Chicago. They then kicked off on a 6-month journey starting with blog posts on May APA Heritage Month and ended in October talking about community organizing.
We thank the bloggers for their dedication and all of your support, RTs and likes throughout the project period! Look out for NOP: Generation 3 coming soon to a computer near you.
