SEEING STRIPES

I spent the weekend in LA helping out at the ISA Music Festival event in Long Beach. It was such an incredible experience to work alongside so many influential people in the Asian American media industry. The event featured outstanding performances from many talented YouTube artists and selected mainstream artists.

I had the privilege of working with Prohgress from Far East Movement, and I must say, I have so much respect for him and the rest of the FM team. For individuals with celebrity status, they were unbelievably humble. They built their empire from the ground up with humble beginnings, and they still have not lost sight of that. They are so evidently grateful for where they are today, and it really shines through when they interact with fans and the people they work with. If you haven't checked out their album, Free Wired, you should definitely pick it up on iTunes or a record store. It's an incredible album with beats that will make you want to get up from your seat and dance!

Working this event further confirmed my love for music and especially the Public Relations and Event Production industry. I didn't have very much to do with the planning of ISA itself since I was only brought on the team on the day of, but I felt every bit as proud of this event as I would have if I had planned it. There was a moment when I was standing backstage, watching a performance, and I just felt incredibly happy at the success of the event. It was a feeling beyond myself. At that moment, all the hard work came together. That feeling is what gives me the perseverance to continue pursuing a career in PR.

This week will be a gloomy one in San Diego, but I'm going to be heading up to San Francisco/Berkeley on Thursday night to visit the boy. Looking forward to it! Hope everyone has a blessed week!
