I am so proud of @alapal for her Honorable Mention earned in the 20th annual Growing Up Asian in America art and writing competition sponsored by the Asian Pacific Fund for her photographic piece seen here. She skillfully referenced Dorothea Lange’s iconic “Migrant Mother” created during the Great Depression to talk about the contemporary immigrant experience, rooted in her own family’s story of immigrating from the Philippines. Boston University is so lucky to have this hard working young woman joining the terrier family next year. I will miss her dearly but know that she is off to accomplish much more and start the next chapter in her life. #GrowingUpAsianinAmerica #AsianPacificFund #AsianArtMuseum (at Asian Art Museum)
