Hi everyone!

This is a particularly important topic to me and I wanted to speak out about it. So I invited my friend from California to explain a little bit about the rise of Asian hate crime in America. Just to let you know, we are not experts in this and we just wanted to share our opinions on the subject matter.

If you are experiencing any level of hate crime, please ask for help or talk to your friends and family.
