The East Kentwood High School Asian Student Union recently showcased the kaleidoscope of Asian cultures during its first Asian Festival.
The night of festivities planned by students, included ethnic foods, dances and games.
The Asian Student Union is a club at East Kentwood High School whose purpose is to educate the community about Asian cultures and celebrating their accomplishments.
“In a community riddled with hundreds of cultures, languages and ethnicities, it is of paramount importance that the community understands their stories,” said Thang Lian, a student officer in the club. “The Asian Festival took inspiration from streets lit by hundreds of lights, food stands littered about, and the general familial, laughter-infested atmosphere of the giant Asian cities.”
