Mother of two and founding director of the ACC. Currently working with a dynamic ACC team in DEIA efforts and initiatives, nonprofit work, and finding time to run, cook, and bake in between. This year, I am teaching a course on Asian American and Pacific Islander Communities and Social Change in Asian American Studies Program.
Our center is located just a few steps away from Woodlawn field. I am happy to meet with you over a nice walk around the field or for a cup of tea/coffee at the center to talk about the ACC, potential collaborations, AAPI experience, and or running races. I look forward to meeting you.

Hello! I have been with the ACC since 2011, and I love planning programs and developing resources for the campus and community with the ACC staff. I am also an IU alum (D.M., 2014) who fell in love with Bloomington and never left! I enjoy traveling, reading, playing the organ, and discovering new places in town. I hope you will stop by and see what our center has to offer!
Hey everyone! I’m the graduate assistant at the ACC, and I’m studying for a dual Master of Public Affairs and M.S. in Environmental Science. I love exploring nature and traveling, and I enjoy learning and talking about the world, especially Asia and the Pacific Islands, so feel free to chat with me!
Hi everyone! I am a junior majoring in neuroscience and psychology. I enjoy baking, badminton, reading (drop book recommendations) and have been trying to get more into yoga. The Asian Culture Center is an incredibly warm and welcoming place and I hope you love it as much as I do :) If you ever want to grab a cup of tea/coffee and talk, feel free to drop by!
Hi everyone, I'm Karen! I'm one of the student assistants that update the ACC website. I'm a junior studying a major in Media and a minor in Psychology. I love doing my makeup, journaling, traveling, and posting on my YouTube channel! If you need a boba buddy (my favorite flavors are wintermelon and original milk tea), I'm so down to tag along. The IU AAPI community has given me the happiest times, so I hope the ACC can be a welcoming place for everyone.
Hi guys! My name is Audrey, and I'm a junior majoring in Biology and pursuing an honors certificate in the Liberal Arts & Management Program. I grew up in Bloomington, so if you ever need restaurant recommendations I got you! I also love plants, and I'd be thrilled to take a trip to the local greenhouse with a new face. The ACC is a family that welcomes anyone with an interest in our community - if you need someone to talk to, I'm more than available. Hope to see you there!
Hi everyone! My name is Andy. I am currently a second-year graduate student in the Master’s of Higher Education program. I am originally from Seattle and enjoy hiking, traveling and exploring coffee shops. I mostly work with the ACC’s radio show Hearabouts which has been so much fun! The ACC has also been a second home of sorts during my time at IU and I’ve met some awesome people there. I hope to see you there as well!
Hi everyone! I'm Benjamin Shih, I'm a freshman studying Cybersecurity & Global Policy with a minor in Business. I enjoy weight lifting, watching movies, and traveling around the world. I am also slowly getting into cooking and am looking for new dishes to try and make. I enjoy meeting new people and talking about their backgrounds so if you're near drop by!
Hi! My name is Hannah and I'm a junior studying Finance and Supply Chain with minors in Chinese and Music. I am a student assistant and the new IUSG rep for the ACC. In my free time, I like to cook and make boba, and my hobbies include nail art-ing, thrifting, hiking, and taking pictures. There's always something going on in the ACC, so maybe I'll see you around!
Hi! I am a junior majoring in Supply Chain and Business Analytics, minoring in Geography. I am a big Japanese light novel reader and avid tea connoisseur. Collecting rare teas is my expensive hobby. I am also studying abroad in South Korea for Spring 2022 but will be staging a comeback to the ACC in my senior year!
Hi! My name is Katelyn and I am currently a Freshman majoring in neuroscience and minoring in community and global health. I am from Louisville, KY and I love singing, reading, watching movies, and trying new restaurants! I absolutely love the people and environment at the ACC and really hope that it can be a loving and welcoming community for everyone on campus! If you need anything at all or ever want to talk or go out to eat let me know! Hope to see you all soon!
你好! Greetings and a warm welcome from the Asian Culture Center! I'm an undergraduate upperclassman studying Intelligent Systems Engineering with a minor in Mathematics. At the ACC I serve as the representative for the center on the Cabinet of Student Leaders. My coworkers like to joke about this a lot, but I really do spend all of my free time at the ACC! In my opinion, the ACC is the perfect place to engage with the IU AAPI community and participate in thoughtful discourse concerning general AAPI issues. We also host events and occasionally provide free food. When you have time, feel free to stop by!
Hello! I’m Karen, a sophomore studying Informatics with double minors in Psychology and Human-Centered Computing. I’m a big NHL fan (Go Avs & Pens!) and a National Park lover. One of my personal goals is to go to as many USNPs as possible. I’m currently at 17/63 so I’ve still got a long way to go, but I hope to be able to check some more off in the coming years. If you ever stop by the ACC, feel free to drop in and chat with me :)
