Asian Austin is about community. I strongly believe that communication builds community. The more we can share with each other, the stronger we become as a community.
I started Asian Austin after I had my first son. I wanted to learn more about the Asian American community and keep traditions alive for our family. Since then, and with two more sons later, we’ve gone to Dragon Boat Festivals, Buddhist Temples, Hindu Temples, Tet Festivals, seen dragon and lion dances, Thai dances, Bangladeshi dances and enjoyed so many different foods together.
Along the way, I’ve learned so much and my appreciation for the rich diversity represented in so many Asian cultures has only deepened. My hope is that by sharing Asian Austin news, culture, people and organizational profiles, we can all learn and build a stronger community together.
I invite you to browse through the site, and if you have news to share, events to post and any other ideas – please drop me a line! Please also visit my Asian Austin Facebook page for more events and updates as well. I look forward to hearing from you!
