Loud Town Hall changed my life! I have been to some friendly group gatherings, but none quite like this. In the months after we all met, I've gotten to know two new friends: Paola, a Whittier YMCA wunderkind and fierce future social worker, who gave me the honor to introduce her to my alma mater, Whittier College; and, our own cult of kindness priestess Veronica -- we've been plotting together to conjure a center for love and acceptance in Whittier. Not one of these women ever met a stranger. Divinity is opening doors in my life - thank you Loud for acting as an agent. Here's to more in 2019!

Proud to say, Loud made its first Bay Area pit stop in Oakland, CA, convening an intimate group of strong and powerful women who did minimal digging to find themselves in a comfortable and welcoming environment. It's far too common for women - like us here in Loud, Oakland, to deeply internalize the insurmountable pressures that tag our day to day - whether it's culturally or ethnically, we stretch ourselves too thin. So when I learned there was a platform to meet other women who just wanna speak their truths to elevate, uplift and connect and ultimately uplift, I knew Loud was the agent that would enable a movement that as a brown woman, I've needed for some time now. I can't wait for what is to come.

The Loud event was an awesome space to talk about what we, as women of color, experience every day. It’s a great community of women to talk not only about your personal and professional goals, but also how we can support each other’s future achievements.

My biggest takeaway from the Loud event was the reminder that we’re more similar than we are different. We’re all struggling with the same issues connected to our desire to be seen, heard, and ultimately, feel loved and valued. In a world where real human connection seems to be waning, it was inspiring and refreshing to experience this in Loud's unique space with a group of woman who I had never met before.

After Loud's Town Hall I started to think critically about community and how important it is to be around people who understand my experiences. I realized I didn't have a community to turn to. I was inspired to speak to 2 close friends of mine who felt the same and we've decided to queue some podcast chat ideas for us to discuss issues that pertain specifically to Asian American Women. We felt like we didn't have an immediate community to turn to, and were inspired by Loud to make our own.
