Only 1 DAY AWAY!
Please come celebrate our new Fall 2011 issue!!!
Food and drinks will be provided, but more importantly, we will be distributing our long-anticipated Fall 2011 issue, hot off the press! Our new issue explores topics such as who you would root for at the FIFA World Cup, what it’s like to be biracial, “RenRen” (China’s Facebook?!), in addition to some exclusive interviews with AZIATIX and JOHN CHO & KAL PENN of A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas… and more!
We have also invited three special guest speakers who work in media, marketing, journalism, and the entertainment industry to talk to us about what it’s like working in these industries. Telly Wong and Ellie Lee of IW Group, Inc., an Asian American marketing agency, will join us to discuss working in their media, marketing and entertainment fields. Fashion reporter David Yi of New York Daily News will speak about what it’s like being a fashion journalist for a prominent New York news agency! See below for bios.
