Judging the Pageant

I was invited by the AASU at FSU to be one of the judges (out of 3) for the Mister and Miss Asian American Student Union. This was my first experience as a pageant judge and I was nervous as the participants before the event began. We had about dozen participants and this was the preliminary interview. As the event progressed both the participants and I became comfortable and I was happy to be part of the process.

ACT Interview

Monday, March 1, 2010

Tallahassee, FL 32306

A student at School of Library and Information Studies at the FSU College of Communication and Information ( interviewed me as part of his course requirement. For his Master’s project he needed to talk to a community leader and find out about the needs of the community. Using the census data he narrowed the selection of the community to Asians. Then using the Internet he found my name and sent an e-mail for the interview. You can see the interviews questions and answers here.
