Transcripts available in the following languages:

I freelanced for awhile and was relatively successful, did a lot of work for magazines. But I realized at the time that that wasn’t what I wanted to do, because the stories that sold were not the stories that I wanted to tell…I happened to run across a newspaper, an Asian American newspaper called Gidra, and later it turned out to be the Asian American Movement newspaper. And I realized that there were other people feeling this way, other Asian Americans.
