Breaking the "Bamboo Ceiling"
I'm happy because Wilma Chan is overqualified and has the potential to be the first Asian woman senator in California.
I'm relieved because the Asian community and I don't have to choose between supporting Wilma Chan and Alameda County Supervisor Alice Lai-Bitker, who is running for the assembly seat.
Chan and Lai-Bitker are both awesome women and loved by their constituent. It would be awkward and conflicted to have to choose between the two.
They have my support because they took time to meet with my parents and supporters and made extra effort to support my parole and fight to stay in the U.S.
Too bad I can't vote, by my family and friends can.
