"I took my first journey to Thailand when I was a sophomore in college on a study abroad trip and it fundamentally changed how I saw the world. Connecting with my kin across the ocean and rediscovering my family’s history opened my eyes to new directions I wanted to take in my life. Being able to combine that passion with my own passion for the arts felt like the perfect fit for where I wanted to be. My vision for SSMT 2018 is to bring my skills as a media maker and a storyteller to share the powerful journey that we are on as a team as well as the journey that our Hmong communities across the world are on as well."
