About 2 weeks ago, I had the honor of being one of the photographers for the Empower 2019 conference created by Kollaboration. The goal of the conference is to inspire the next generation of Asian Americans in their creative career path or industry. Aspiring Asian Americans from all different ages and backgrounds gathered together at the Japanese American National Museum to hear from professionals across various industries such as art, digital media, entertainment, and business. This 2 day conference included workshops led by industry experts, small group mentorship programs, panelist sessions, and the chance to network with other attendees. While I was photographing the event, I also had the chance to sit in and listen to some of the speakers who spoke at the large group sessions. After attending the conference, I came back feeling rejuvenated and inspired more than ever. I highly recommend you guys to attend the Empower Conference next year if you’re ever in the Los Angeles area!
