For National Public Radio: "If The Horse Dies, You Step Down and Walk": Two Cantonese Women Share Their Immigrant Journey

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 created a project, which portrays 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.
