Pictures about AAPI

With my date at @nbcwashingtonFor Filipino American History Month, @aarpphoto #AAPI @nextdaybetter made this video about my journey as a Proud Filipinx American! 🇵🇭🇺🇸 ***
A Filipina American Story as told by supermodel and transgender advocate, Geena Rocero.  Read her full story below: “When I  joined my first trans beauty pageant, I felt like I was dreaming. At 15 years old, I became a trans beauty queen, and my world changed. I found support in the Filipino LGBT community while I made a career out of joining pageant after pageant. Then, at 17, my life as a diva was interrupted when my family immigrated to San Francisco. Suddenly, I was a young trans person dealing with a drastic change in culture and options. I lost the security of the pageant scene in the Philippines. I decided to move to New York and become a model; I could use my pageant training this way. 
At auditions, driven to succeed, I hid that I was transgender. I thought I had a better chance as a cisgender model. In a way, that was true. I landed big jobs, like a lip gloss commercial for Rimmel Cosmetics, the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, and working the runway at New York Fashion Week. I even starred in The Weeknd’s music video. 
Just as I was about to turn 30, I felt I had to come out to the world. I revealed my inner truth on one of the biggest stages in the world, at an annual TED Conference. It was a big risk I was willing to take because I felt so ready to be real. By luck, the timing was right because the world was starting to engage in conversations about gender identity. 
That talk changed my life. It has been translated into over 30 languages, telling me that while I don’t represent every trans person or trans identity in every part of the world, I have a very global story. I started a production company called Gender Proud. I began advocating for equal rights for trans people that led to working with the United Nations, the White House, and with people back in the Philippines. 
I know I’m no savior. I can#workingstill #atlanticcity #us #aapi #giglife insta topsy.oneLast week I had the amazing opportunity to spend a little time with this legend. @msleasalonga She sang at the event in Hawaii and she truly lifted my heart with that incredible voice of hers. But beyond that perfect pitch and rich voice, she#Aapi 😊 insta topsy.oneOo latepost what else is new 🙈 // I did #JE10 eboard this year because I wanted to help make sure such a landmark event would continue to welcome #AAPI students at #USF for years to come, many of whom are like me and never had the privilege of a strong Asian community on their campus before. So tysm to everyone who came out and has continued to support JE over the past decade!
+ofc shoutout to my #usfkappas, I def wouldnAlways a great time with veteran, congresswoman and the most peaceful badass who is determined to end U.S. involvement in interventionist wars ✊🏽@tulsigabbard and of course the wonderful & impressive @chloebennet who started @runaapi to have a conversation about engaging the #AAPI community in politics & activism. As people of color in America, we all need to wipe "minority" from our vocabulary & mindset and have a more global mentality. We are not minor in any way. People of color are clearly the MAJOR demographic in this world. And our struggle, the struggle to fight the lingering effects of colonialism & white supremacy in our institutions and in our perspective, is interlinked and interrelated. Our "freedom struggle", if you will, is not separate. We need to unite and liberate as one. And we must elevate those that are doing the good work. Put your activism hat on... represent. Tell our stories, in media, BEAUTY, tech, criminal justice reform, culinary arts, performing arts, literature etc. Get out in the streets and fight for something & someone outside of your immediate circle. LetWas an honor getting to meet congressman @TedLieu and talk about ways we can help push #AAPI representation in our country. TY @runaapi insta topsy.oneThis week @rbarbaltimore: end #APAHM right with our 2 feature cocktails by @daaangalex and Danny J. Proceeds to support local #AAPI creatives in Baltimore. 🥃

This special #reception will mark an important milestone for Asian American general counsel, while raising awareness that we continue to be significantly underrepresented in the #legal profession as revealed by a recent report entitled “A Portrait of Asian Americans in the #Law”. Because of these disparities, all proceeds from sponsorships for the 100 GC Celebration beyond the cost of the event will be used to support a grant for The Portrait Project’s continued research into the causes and potential solutions of this underrepresentation.

A 2016 National Multifamily Housing Council survey found that just 1 percent of apartment owners currently allow home sharing, while 42 percent conceded their residents list units on Airbnb despite leases explicitly prohibiting short-term rentals. -Colorado Real Estate Journal @areaadenver #coloradorealestate #areaadenver #airbnb #boomingeconomy #areaaglobal #areaa #aapi #investmentrealestate #airbnbinvestment #realestate #propertyinvestment #wealthbuilding insta topsy.oneOur spotlight continues on Greece.. Why would a foreign investor buy real estate in Greece? •Title is free and clear
•Safest country in the world
•Greece is strategically located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia & Africa
•Greece is synonymous to natural beauty. Crystal clear blue waters, small picturesque islands and white sandy beaches
•Greece is considered the birthplace of western civilization, having contributed the bases for Mathematics, Physics, Literature and other sciences. Residing in Greece offers the unique opportunity to discover ancient sites that are spread throughout the country. From Ancient Olympia, where the first Olympic Games were held, to Parthenon and the Agora of Athens, where Democracy was born, the presence of ancient Greek civilization is astonishing.
•Due to its richness and diversity, Greek diet is considered one of the healthiest in the world and is linked to the reduction of cardiovascular diseases and thus, longevity. •What more could anyone ask for than 300 days of sunshine a year! Greece is renowned for its dry summer climate, combining hot days with breezy nights. Greek summer can last well from May to September allowing one to enjoy the sea and the sun to the fullest.
