"Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia,"-Acts 16:6

As a 2nd generation Filipino-American, I've interacted with Asian & Asian-Americans alike since I've grown up in St. Paul. I had 2 nearyby neighbors from Vietnam whom I got along playing baseball, nintendo, and all sorts of games as "little kids". We didn't really talk much about our ethnic-cultural backgrounds as we had similar taste for food, karate/kung-fu, and walking together to Battle Creek Elementary School in east St. Paul.

Then I went through a cultural collision in Battle Creek Middle School, where I didnt' want to associate with Asians at all (testimony). I remember using the term "gook", even though I was called one.

I started searching my roots by getting involved with the Asian Club at Harding Senior High School when I was asked by a close friend (who happened to be Vietnamese). Then at UMM I got involved with the Asian Student Association, where I began to search more of my Filipino identity for many reasons (was asked "Where are you from?", "you speak good English", "what is the Philippines like").

Through many conferences (Harvard, MAASU-Asian American, Georgetown-Hmong Youth Conference and others related events, I've been able to compile the following resources=>
