Two Cantonese Women Share Their Immigrant Journey
Photographed For National Public Radio
Photo Editor: Xueying Chang & Michele Abercrombie

The Atlanta spa shootings in March 2021 murdered six women of Asian descent, including two women from China. As a response to the shootings, I wrote and created a multimedia project about two Cantonese women immigrants and their lives in the United States. They are Liang Runling (梁润玲), a caretaker in Boston, and Lisa Lai (黎麗莎), a tailor in Philadelphia. They are mothers, wives, daughters, and community contributors with an unwavering work attitude.

The multimedia presentation of images alongside audio clips is also featured here on NPR's Instagram.
