@senduckworth is the first Asian American woman elected to Congress in Illinois and first member of Congress born in Thailand. She is a veteran and helicopter pilot and suffered severe combat wounds, losing both her legs. Needless to say, she's fought to be represented in Washington and used her voice to speak on immigration and women's health policies. Her journey is a reminder that what you speak out about and fight for defines you not your race, gender, ethnicity.
In celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month this May, we're featuring some of our favorite Asian American and Pacific Islander American thinkers. They'll tell their stories about the rewards, challenges, and realities of straddling two identities — especially when the compatibility of the two has recently come under attack.

Comment below with how you like to spend your alone time and the journey you took to becoming comfortable with being by yourself. "If you feel that you’re not understood or you don’t have anyone to share your thoughts, feelings, or experiences with, that’s a sign that you’re lonely. But if you’re alone, you might not have anyone with you, but you still have this sense that there are people out there you can relate to." — Michael Brustein, PsD, a clinical psychologist based in NYC.

Princess Ka'iulani was the Crown Princess of the Kingdom of Hawaii. Her intelligence and determination showed as she fought for her nation and was outspoken about injustices toward her people. After the fall of Hawaii's monarchy in the late 1800's, she visited the United States and made many speeches in an effort to restore the Kingdom and denounce the overthrow of her government. Although she died at an early age from pneumonia, #PrincessKaiulani created an impact on all that met her as a woman who persevered through tough circumstances.

We're tired of feeling like we have to look a certain way to be allowed to take up space — in our own lives, out in the world, and particularly this time of year, on the beach. We're redefining the beach body this year and we want to see the body part you love the most.
Share your photo and story on Insta, tag @refinery29 and use the hashtag #TakeBackTheBeach — you could even see yourself in an R29 story sometime soon!
