2009| 2019 | 2029??! #10yearchallenge

Good morning, it’s barely 2019 and we already introduced our first bill!!! So proud of the Rise team!! We’re getting to work and fighting for these rights. Check out link in bio if you want to join Rise and organize!

Wow, what a lovely surprise! Came back to my room to see breathtaking @jeffleatham flowers!!!! I travel so often for work (it’s a joyous and rewarding experience) but sometimes I miss home. “I heard you love flowers and I wanted to make your day.” Thank you Vali from @fslosangeles for making my day!

Three nerds trying to save America

On my way to the Season 6 Premiere Party of Comedy Central’s Drunk History!!! I’m channeling Asian “herstory” for this premiere inspired by Li Li-Hua, a pioneering Asian actress whose career spanned from the 40s to the 70s!

NINE NINE! Season 6 Premiere of Brooklyn 99 is tonight! Can’t wait to cheer on Terry!

Ahhhh!! Rise is in 20,000 schools across America today!!! Thanks to Amplifier and Shepard Fairey, thousands of students across the nation got a Civics organizing curriculum I created called Hopeanomics. The greatest thing I’m proud of is not that I have passed 20 laws, but rather, that others on the Rise team passed these laws after going through the training. Once, when I was presenting Hopeanomics, someone asked me why I was giving away knowledge that I could make money off of. It’s my belief that the most efficient way to spread change is to train others to do what I’ve done. And if you can do it better than I have that means we all have succeeded. Here’s to building the next generation of leaders to rewrite the law! ✊🇺🇸

At Forbes tonight for Jean Case’s #BeFearless book launch party! Jean & Forbes have been so supportive of me and Rise over the years. Grateful for their continued support and dedication to making the world a better place.

Thanks New York Magazine’s The Cut for including me as a Changemaker of 2018! Here’s to changing the world in 2019, striving for that ever more perfect union.

You don’t know what you’re missing until you see it for the first time. Asian. Representation. ✊thanks for including me in 2018’s Asian excellence around the world. 🌎🌏🌍Let’s keep making history.
