"People often mistake me for my racial ambiguity; I get mistaken as Hispanic, Caucasian, but never Asian. I am considered a person of color, but I'm not very colorful. What people never mistake, however, is the love I have for my kultura and my pamilya. The endless nights wrapping copious piles of lumpia with my nanay, the boundless stacks of Balikbayan boxes sent overseas every month. The crows of the rooster at the break of dawn, the beams of sunlight penetrating the cracks in the wall of my nanay's childhood home. The beauty of the Philippines is exemplified in our land, our food, our people, our love. That is what makes me a Filipinx of OSU."

"As I grew up in a Filipino household, it was more and more apparent to me that family is the most important aspect of Filipino culture. It was all about the little things like eating together at the dinner table, and watching teleseryes together that made us feel closer. Although the majority of families in the Philippines struggle with poverty, they are still happy as long as they're together, and they're grateful for what they have. I am happy to be the person that I've become, and that is thanks to my loving family. Mahal ko kayong lahat!"

10/20/2019

"People always question what filipino pride is, and why as filipinos hold it to such a high account. When people think of the Philippines, they think of the tropical islands, the welcoming hospitality, food. But they don't understand the violence and oppression that the people go through. A people who had their culture and language taken away over and over again. To be looked down upon and forgotten. To be used and unrecognized for our work, yet remain humble. And so the moment when we have our culture and language praised. The moment when we stand in the spotlight, even for just a moment. To finally be recognized and stand on top of the world, AND STILL REMAIN HUMBLE. That is why we have filipino pride, and why I am proud to be filipino."

"Being a Filipino means having a firm foundation. Growing up, we’re taught the importance of family, friends, hard work, dedication, perseverance, education, high morals, history, and most importantly, love. Filipinxs are joyful and kind, despite any hardships or trials, looking to help those in need. We’re an accepting community, trying to shine a light on a world that can be troubling at times. We support each other through thick and thin, which I’m beyond grateful for. It moves me to see young Filipinxs working hard to make the word a better place!"

"I am the product of colonization, the mistaken identity of being labeled and pushed into boxes. Constantly being asked "where are you from?". The question of which box I have to check; Pacific Islander, Asian, Latinx, or other. It's the proud realization that I am a product of my parents, strong immigrants, who built a life from the ground up in America. It means I descend from a country whose culture held strong even after centuries of foreign rule. Being Filipinx is the strength to push forward and shine bright with the power of the sun and three stars."

As part of Filipino American History Month, we are starting a new series titled "Filipinx of OSU"! Throughout the month, we will be featuring insights and perspectives of students at OSU who identify as filipino/filipina/filipinx.
.
"Being filipina means being a part of a strong community that goes beyond your immediate family. Joining IBP at OSU had led me to meet people who are my ride or dies and they create such a warm and supportive environment. Filipinxs in general are really welcoming people and who are open to inviting you into the community, even if you don't identify as filipinx!" - Nicole Landon, 3rd year Public Health/Pre-Nursing

Last Friday, APCC staff ventured out to Portland to visit the Portland Chinatown Museum, Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center, and the office of the Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon (APANO)!
.
We learned about the rich history and current situation of the Chinese population in Oregon, Portland's role in the WW2 japanese internment camps, and APANO's mission to have everyone represented in the 2020 census.
.
Did you know that Portland used to have the 2nd largest Chinatown in the nation? And that more than 3,500 Japanese Americans were forcibly housed in Portland's Expo Center during WW2?
