On April 15, Wellesley’s Advisor for Students of Asian Descent, Karen Shih, hosted a panel called “Building Resilience: Addressing Anti-Asian Racism During COVID-19.” The goals of the event were to empower people of Asian descent with strategies for navigating racism, violence, harassment, and discrimination in the midst of COVID-19; offer advice to allies who want to better support Asians and Asian Americans; and share historical context & raise awareness about the dynamics of anti-Asian racism. Our Wellesley sib, Huiying B. Chan ‘16, was one of the panelists, and was gracious enough to spend an afternoon with us to discuss what that event meant to them.
