I am a child of a two Filipino Immigrants.
2.5 years ago when I was a guest on the @firstgenburden podcast, I was able to speak on my upbringing and how I felt disconnected from my Filipino roots due to being raised in South Central LA. I started to learn more about my family history when I became an adult and the story of my grandparents/mothers hustle and sacrifice to come to America is beyond amazing and admirable. My life’s goal is to continue to make them proud, so that their efforts in providing their children a better life don’t go to waste.
2.5 years later, here I am with @firstgenburden and @rich_tu again, along with @wearecultivator and @nike for the “First Gen” Nike Air Max 270 Reacts shoe drop. Available for a limited time, you can purchase them HERE. ALL the profits will go to the @ACLU_nationwide to help benefit #immigrants rights. ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿
