It’s been an emotional distraction at work for sure, although Asian American Hate is getting some more visibility I can’t help but continue to see so many not recognize it or care. It’s not new, just flaring up. It’s part of American history. On a positive note, I am grateful for the discussions and new public visibility this has. I’m optimistic and energized to help be the change the world needs as we pursue equality and eradicate racism and other forms of hate and discrimination.

I got off the phone with my mom today telling her not to go out for now. Never thought I’d ever have to do that, especially not in 2021.

Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.
