Another monumental moment in Asian American history. Hopefully we can see more families of diversity especially Asian American. #myapastory2018 #myapalife #apahm

"My father was very strict- all of the kids had to work hard in the family store after school. The store was in a very poor community in the Southern Philippines. The customers were sometimes very tough or rude. I learned to understand these problems, but also to protect the store. My mother came from a very large, poor family with ten children, always struggling to survive. She taught me to love my neighbors, because the neighbors always helped each other out." -Connie Ling [This photo is part of our month-long series on Chinese immigrants in NYC.

This guy’s career is such an inspiration for me. Glad he’s out there on the front lines creating diversity and making some kick ass blockbusters! Someday, I hope to do the same. #myapastory2018 #myapalife #apahm #justinlin

Me Made May Day 26 ✨Thinking fondly of my amazing ceramics teacher, Mr. Hideo Okino from my @midpacific days. He was the first art teacher who inspired me and still inspiring me daily in spirit...my love of denim can be traced back to him💙 Reclaimed the @folkwearsewing.patterns Chinese top I made for girlie 2 years ago (with Japanese bunny cotton fabric from Satin Moon Fabrics) over a @merchantandmills Bantam dress in lightweight denim💙

FREE ART SUPPLIES, RANDOM STUFF, & IKEA FURNITURE! I'm moving! I'm downsizing, so I'm trying to get rid of as much as I can (and have been donating books and clothes to @goodwillintl). If anyone wants free art supplies / random stuff I've accumulated over the past 7 years in my cave / @ikeausa furniture, LMK! All you need to do is come pick it up yourself before 6/1 (I'm in Logan Square near the Blue Line). I'll keep adding to the following list as I continue to pack (and I'll continuously update it as people claim items), but so far I'm giving away these: http://www.facebook.com/TheJennyLam/posts/10103897032058312 (you can also find the link to my FB post on my Twitter—my handles for both are TheJennyLam) // Pictured here: Flashback Friday to the first stop on my parents' and my #SilkRoad Tour in Western #China: The Yellow River Mother Sculpture, #Lanzhou, #Gansu. The Yellow River is the cradle of #Chinese civilization. 🌊 More of my photos from that inspiring trip are currently on view at the West Chicago Avenue Branch of the @ChicagoPublicLibrary, Austin, for Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month: http://www.chipublib.org/news/art-exhibit-by-jenny-lam-at-west-chicago-avenue-branch One week left to see my exhibit! .

#FBF to last August when @tfalpodcast released an audio story I recorded about my tita, Justita. Despite our sole meeting, her life story and ideologies inspire me to live the life that I want to live; as “a real Lola.” I’d like to think I’ve done some interesting things in my adulthood so far, and a lot of that is owed to her philosophy of fulfilling the potential everyone is born with to be extraordinary.

Please head on over to the #ThisFilipinoAmericanLife website or on iTunes to listen to my audio story, “About Tita.” #MyAPALife #AboutTita #FilipinoAmerican #Filipino #PhilippineResistance #BicolUniversity #ClairedeLune

We asked Norm Hewitt why it’s important to have Pacific Islander representation in media...here’s what he said. 🤙 Mahalo, Norm!

For #AsianPacificAmericanHeritageMonth, we celebrate the work our grantee, the National Coalition for Asian Pacific American Community Development. Seema Agnani, executive director of CAPACD, oversees a coalition of more than 100 community-based organizations in 21 states and the Pacific Islands. Collectively, the coalition improves the lives of over two-million Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who live in poverty by providing voice, tools and shared knowledge to drive change. #WKKF #KelloggFoundation #AsianPacificAmericanHeritageMonth #APAHM #AAPIHM #MyAPALife #AAPI #AsianAmerican #PacificIslander #NationalCoalitionForAsianPacificAmericanCommunityDevelopment

Some more Asian Americans in entertainment goodness. Here’s @kellyhu and @erniereyesjr in “Surf Ninjas”. It was a silly, wacky movie but it was still fun. It also had Rob Schneider lol #myapastory2018 #myapalife #apahm

Last day of #CAAMFest36 ~ I brought my mom to see @brendawongaoki’s “Aunt Lily’s Flower Book,” a live performance with @markizumusic 🎭 #MyAPALife

I first saw Brandon Lee in “Showdown in Little Tokyo” and I thought it was really cool to see Bruce Lee’s son in a co-lead role with Adolph Lundgren. Representing in the early 90s with @tiacarrere #myapastory2018 #myapalife #apahm
