I’m honored to share this talk with Patrick Michael Strange, on being a Filipino and creating Filipino Stories. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the many identities we take on in life. Although these identities are not who we are — it is our clay in this life time to work with.
One of mine is being a Filipino-American. I am so grateful for this opportunity! Filipinos all over the world have been handed a deep and colorful card.
Thanks to Patrick Michael Strange and his team – Kat Stevens and Tina Michelle for shining the light on Filipino voices all over the world and for continuing the conversations.
