Praise for Awesome Asian Americans
“This is the book I wish I had when I was young. Who knew that as an Asian American I could one day be a social media phenomenon, a CEO, an astronomer, a Broadway star or an activist? Awesome Asian Americans is engaging and entertaining, but it’s not a fluffy read. The authors frame these extraordinary lives in the social contexts of their times, making their stories our story.”
-Renee Tajima-Pena, Filmmaker and UCLA professor of Asian American Studies
