This year, East Coast Asian American Student Union (ECAASU) held its 36th annual conference in Washington, D.C. Marilyn Chin read a collection of ‘bad girl’ haiku from her upcoming book, “Hard Love Province,” during performances held after Gala ceremonies.




Several young Asian American performers were also showcased, including KT Tatara, a stand-up comedian covering “timeless topics such as gender roles and race” and an amazing rapper and spoken word artist Ruby Ibarra.
