Give it up for the next generation of artists! Alina Amkhavong was one of the performing poets at the 2017 Lao American Writers Summit. She shared her spoken word poem “blossom” as part of the Lao’d Remix showcase.
A senior at USC, she said “Throughout my educational career, it has been difficult for me to learn about and understand my own history. I love that with the Lao American Writers Summit we are given the opportunity to embrace our Lao background, traditions and culture and feel empowered by it! I am most excited about being in a space with many other creative individuals who I can identify with.”
