Meeting Fellow Tweeps in Seattle’s Asian-Am/Pac-Islander Community

I held my very first ever tweetup this past week! It was themed around Asian-American and Pacific-Islander tweeps and was held at Marination Station! We had 9 adults, 3 kids, and 1 dog! It was great to meet new people and hear stories.

JP (@mymachero and @jpkang) and his wife had three beautiful kids (who all had great fashion sense) and I later found out that we had 8 mutual friends from Seattle and NJ!

Molly (@mollyhawks) works for evo and is super-rad. We may have met briefly a long time ago but we started playing Words with Friends before this tweetup. We talked about non-profits and volunteering/mentoring!

Martha (@martha_kang) and Veronica (@veronicas) worked together at KOMO News and are heavily involved in social media in Seattle!

Nancy (@taiwanesebob) and I used to volunteer at Chill. She works for the City of Redmond in youth development and is the Board Chair for the amazing non-profit Skate Like a Girl!

It was a ton of fun to meet such amazing people and to eat really really good food! Stay tuned for the next one! (Oh and for those of you who are NOT AAPI – everyone’s welcome!)
