Christy wrote and recorded a personal essay/speech in response to the spike in racism against East and South East Asian (ESEA) people across the globe during COVID-19, and a call for her communities to unite. The piece aims to give hope and rally for ESEAs to come together, to inclusively support each other, to address issues of utilising the model minority myth and anti-blackness etc.
