“Ms. Leung is in charge of putting the assembly together, while students with experience in Asian performing arts participate in the assembly,” Park said.

The Asian community, as well as other people at WJ, want to encourage students to learn more about their culture.

“The goal of the assembly is to teach people more about the Asian culture/heritage and make them motivated and interested to discover more about our Asian culture,” Park said.

Senior Emily Chu is one of the student organizers of the show. She has put in a lot of work to make the assembly entertaining for the students with many different performances.

“This year we will be having various types of acts which includes: dancing, singing, Asian instruments, martial arts, and a fashion show,” Chu said.

A lot of work goes into putting on an exciting assembly. All of the students worked together in order to make this assembly the best it can be.
