America is filled with people who come from various cultures and backgrounds – that’s what makes our country so incredible! Our diversity has always been an asset to all parts of living in America. From jobs to food and everything in-between, having a conglomerate of cultures in the same place not only allows our country to be more open-minded, but it also gives us a chance to experience the heritage of others and most importantly, learn all we can.
As we enter 2020 with a brand new point of view and try to be better people in the process, it’s high time that we embrace the many cultures around us and celebrate the uniqueness of our neighbors. So, to begin the new year, mark your calendar to attend the Asian Festival.
