I told my boyfriend, who wanted to see all the Oscar movies and was getting kind of frustrated because I never wanted to go to the movies with him, that if he could find a movie with an ethnic person in it, then we’ll go. It could be any movie, it doesn’t have to be a blockbuster, it can be an indie, just a movie that has ethnic people in it. And we ended up getting ice cream because he sent me an animation. It’s a bit disappointing.

I also want to have a family of my own and live a life that is exemplary for others, especially for those that relate to my story. I believe in a better world. I want to be a part of the solution. Because it affects me so personally, Immigration reform in this country is on the top of my list. The importance to fight for Human rights and the environment goes without saying. This is just the beginning and there is much to be done. I know I have to work hard for the rest of my life and that is OK.
