2021 Winner


Just because I’m Asian

doesn’t mean I have coronavirus

My ethnicity is not a virus

Racism is the virus

You told me to “Go back to China”

But I’m not Chinese, I’m Vietnamese

Not all Asians are Chinese

We are Asians

And Asians are good at math

Asians can be successful

We work hard

Asian lives matter
