Ashey (37). Social media consultant. Vietnamese.
I vote because I’ve learned over the years that it’s important to care about what is going on in the world around you and one of the most effective ways to promote change is to vote.
I do not feel that Asian American voices are represented in this country.
Due to COVID-19 pandemic, my workload has decreased significantly. When businesses struggle, marketing is usually the first thing to go so I found myself losing a lot of work. Everything has shifted for us, my kids do school from home and my husband is working from home. We don’t get out much and it’s been really hard on me as I’m a very social person.
After this election, I’d love to see the return of compassion and empathy towards people and our planet. I want to see progress being made towards a better tomorrow for our children and their children.
I want people to know that while it’s not as “glamorous” voting in local elections is extremely important. We need to make sure that the cities and states we live in are representing our views and addressing our needs. Learn about your local elections and vote!
