Journey Into Asia 2021: Resilience

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Resources to support the Asian American community:

The UNC Asian American Students Association is pleased to present the 2021 edition of Journey into Asia: Resilience. Journey into Asia is UNCโ€™s largest cultural showcase and is hosted by AASA annually to highlight the talent and diversity of our community. This yearโ€™s theme of resilience was chosen to exhibit the strength and unity of Asian Americans in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the wave of anti-Asian rhetoric and violence that has persisted through the year. We hope that our show will tell these stories, reflect on the things weโ€™ve lost, and show that our community will continue to sing, dance, and thrive in the face of adversity.
