I might cover something else before continuing with part two of The Journey To The West. It’s kind of a doozy, and I’m having a lot of trouble convincing myself to cut some parts out. Watch out for Don Quixote in the meantime.
In 2009, the first Asian American Comic Con was held in New York.
Eight years, the second Asian American Comic Con is held in Los Angeles at the Tateuchi Democracy hall.
The one day summit featured back to back panels discussing topics of diversity and storytelling. There was even an artist alley featuring local artists and creators.
This video features a small highlight of that day.

My new Taekwondo-only channel! I am a 3rd degree Black Belt in Taekwondo and I compete in Sparring- I love doing high kicks, and weapons (nunchucks & bo staff). 2 years ago, I tore two ligaments in my ankle. I kept competing for those 2 years until I absolutely couldn’t. This year, I finally had the much-needed ankle surgery. I can’t wait to get back on the competition floor and am determined to go back in stronger than before!

Asian American talent should be supported. We should be represented in a more accurate light as multidimensional characters in the media. Plus, let’s get some more leads instead of being relegated to sidekick and background roles. Check out #starringjohncho and the website: www.starringjohncho.com by digital strategist William Yu.
