Purple Bubble, here I come!
On Thursday, I'll be hitting up the gorgeous Williams College in Williamstown as part of a month long event to honor Asian Heritage Month: Asian Americans in the Media. I'm particularly excited about visiting this school because I was told that I'd be in for a surprise when I visit this small town. Apparently it's out in the wild with roughly 2,000 students but still made it to Forbes' list as one of the best liberal arts colleges in the States.
Just in case you're not caught up, Hyphen has partnered up with I.W. Group and McDonald’s in an effort to inform and empower campuses with its unique perspective on Asian American arts, culture and politics. With style, of course.
Thursday evening at 7:30 pm, I'll be talking Hyphen 101 at the Paresky Auditorium. First twenty attendees get a free Hyphen issue, so come early!
Many thanks to the board of the Asian American Students in Action (AASiA) and The English Department.
Now the important part: A contest!
This is specifically for the Williams students that I'll be seeing this Thursday: Tell us what makes you Hyphen.
Let us know by submitting a comment. The best response will win a $50 McDonald's Arch Card and a fancy sweatshirt. If your response is not picked, don't fret. We'll have little giveaways waiting for you when we see you.
Poems, pictures, and any other creative responses are also welcome.
