We are excited to bring you a second interview in partnership with the Asian American Literary Review and its Mixed Race Initiative. Writer and Digital Media Specialist Alicia Upano is our guest. Alicia collaborated with Maya Soetoro-Ng to contribute writings to “Mixed Race: Is A Pandora’s Box” about their Hawaiian mixed experience. Join us as we explore the impact of growing up in the most diverse state in the union and how that informed her writings.  We want to thank Maggie Yiin for joining us in interviewing Alicia. Maggie was a Guest Editor for the Mixed Race Initiative.
