Hi y'all! I was published alongside such amazing voices to recognize the Vietnamese American narrative
hey hey hey!
Alex Dang never realized the power of poetry until he found himself one night, hoping to practice a rap he wrote, in high school at a poetry slam: "I just fell ...in love with this art form where it was the same kind of writing that you see in theater and hip hop. It was so poetic, it was heightened, it was elevated, it was dense." http://nbcnews.to/2ajUIt8
i’ve been in Vietnam for a while & i’m coming back tonight. i’m working on a new project. it’s truly what i think is my real, honest, & truly realized vision is. this is my most important work yet.
