Thank you for all the organization officers for helping things run smoothly. When Judge Raymond Unoattended the University of Utah, there were a total of 50 Asian American students of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean descent. We had everyone represented from East, Southeast, South, and Middle East Asia, to Africa, Eurasia, and Latin America. We're the largest group of students with the same interest at the University of Utah: to represent for and be advocates of all Asian Americans in Utah and be aware of the social inequities we face. We must keep in mind that we can appreciate, but we should never appropriate culture :D It's a good year for collaborations, fun, and serious business together. As a combined group, we can do a lot of good and I look forward to collaborating more with these people and organizations!
