Maria Xiong shares her resistance story with us as a second generation Hmong-American woman who is a first-generation college student pursuing psychology. She speaks to the draw towards activism, the role it plays in informing the masses and what each individual can do to contribute to the bigger mission of social justice. The conversation expands on lessons we can learn in engaging with activism work, educating ourselves on how to find then lend our voices to fighting against oppression.
