We are so thrilled to be included in Straight Ahead Podcast's Heritage Month celebration!
We're kicking off our AAPI heritage month celebration with @animasians ! Alisha Syed (External Relations Chair) and Katie Dizon (External Relations Director) talk about the organization, its goals and accomplishments, and about its founding with a small quote from Lexie Chu. Meant as a safe-space, Animasians provides resources and events for its members, but the true strength of AIA is its community. Learn how you can be a part of it, and take advantage of the opportunities this wonderful organization is supplying. On top of that, we touch a little on Alisha's and Katie's day jobs as post-production coordinator and production assistant (respectively), and how their experiences inform their work ethic.
Listen to Katie and Alisha's episode here! (Spotify)
