Lan Ngo spreads awareness on Mental Health focused on Healing & Contemplating.
ID:  A Vietnamese American woman with long dark brown hair in a dark blue dress with a kimono with a pattern of green leaves. She wears stone bracelets and a pink crystal necklace The background is a beige-colored wall with a large picture of trees with black frame. 
Video Transcript: Hello beautiful souls! I’m Lan (name sign). I'm excited to be here with you all. This month May is essential because it brings awareness to Mental Health. It focuses on healing and contemplating. It’s an opportunity to look introspectively. 
We each have a unique different story. Throughout our life, we experienced frustrations and accomplishments. We don't need to compare our life to others. We all went through experiences in life that make us who we are. We experienced traumas, wounds/pains, betrayal, and loneliness. In this video, the focus is on finding your inner light which means to find yourself, your true self. I want you to know that you are not alone and that your feelings are valid. Everyone has their timing and pace. It’s natural for me to help people as much as I help myself and I’m still learning while I'm on my journey. 
What is healing? Forgiveness, recognizing what's holding you back, being aware of your habits, mindset, and more to list. These are your healing processes to focus on to introspect and contemplate. Healing is a process. Trust the process; be consistent and don't give up. Every day is a learning experience and lesson. No one is perfect. We live our life with intention. We always keep learning, growing, improving, and evolving.
It's truly important to be 100 percent honest with yourself and with other people as well. It's not worth dealing with feeling agitated. Being honest doesn't make you look weak or look bad. Being honest is a way to learn more about yourself and receive the respect you deserve. 
Be more patient and kind with yourself. Go with the flow without any expectations. Expectations do hurt and disappoint you. It's not worth dealing with unnecessary feelings. Open your mind and open your heart. Know your worth and you are equally important.
Your feelings are important, right? Feel everything, befriend with your feelings so you can understand your feelings better. For example, when you become upset, take a step back and observe why you're mad. What triggers you and causes you mad? Observe and understand the reasons. In case you may reexperience the situation, you may respond to it differently because you understand yourself better. You would come up with a solution rather than stay mad and resentful. 
Focus on the process so that you will witness your growth and healing. The improvements you make would give you self-confidence. 
You can always reinvent yourself and it’s okay to start over. For example, there's a path you would give it a try and see if it's for you. If not, you can always start over and try a different approach. Be comfortable with who you are and look forward to meeting your true self. 
It's really good to practice meditation every day for 5 to 10 minutes. Meditation is important, because it helps calm your mind and stabilize your emotions, and you would feel more connected to yourself. Embrace your inner beauty, inner love, and inner happiness, and keep them in your heart closely. Do observe inwardly and do not seek outwardly, because all the answers you need to know are already there within you. Meditation and introspection help finding the answers for yourself. 
I understand that living life is hard and challenging when dealing with a job, stress, family, and whatever you are going through. Take a break when you're mentally and emotionally exhausted. Until relaxation boosts your energy and you feel yourself again, you can return to your usual routine. Every time you feel burnt out, you would know it's time to take a break. You can take a break as much as you need. 
When you feel ready to move forward on a new journey, start with forgiving yourself and others. You forgive yourself for all the things you did that will stay behind you in the past. Don't think of what you should have done and think about what you could do that motivates you. Forgive other people so you can let go of the grudges you have against them. Allow them to have a space to grow and allow yourself to have a space to grow, too. Also, letting go of whatever doesn’t benefit you anymore, such as habits, things that you have no connection with, people that don't help you grow, and many to list. 
Practice gratitude and self-love every day. During the process you are working on yourself, remember that your determination and hard work will pay off. You will find yourself no longer attached to whatever’s holding you back and you notice yourself being able to breathe easier, think clearly, and have the strength to move forward than staying in the same place. The more you let go, you become stronger, powerful, wiser, and most importantly, free! 
My top self-care is stretching and breathing meditation. Yes, stretching seems simple and basic. Stretching helps release the tension and stiffness, and it makes my body feel looser. Feeling loose allows me to connect with myself deeply. It makes me feel good and relaxed, and quickly in tune with myself. Stretching transforms my body anew. The more my body feels relaxed, I embrace my inner child more. 
My inner child taught me so much about myself from within. We all have our inner child. Remember how we were like when we were small? Being eager, mischievous, playful, and curious. When we became adults, we forgot what it is like because life consumed us, and forgot to play. Nothing’s wrong with being silly and playful. Laugh and smile more often. Show your creative side with passion. It’s not too late to make your dreams come true. Use your time wisely and have fun. Be open to receive the abundance of love and let your inner light shine brightly. Don’t forget how powerful an artist you are in your own life, and your life is like a canvas you can paint whatever makes you feel inspired, happy, and sparks your joy. You will see a bigger picture that shouts out proudly, "That's my life! That's me!”. 
I hope you learn something and enjoy watching my video. Love and Light. Namaste. Love you all!

Asian But Not Same Webinar

Jayne Kim covers Racial-Based Traumatic Stress (RBTS) and its symptoms, and how we can practice self-care amid RBTS .
List of Health Mental Support/Resources:
ID:Jayne, lighted skinned Korean American woman with dark brown shoulder-length hair wearing navy blue top.  She sits on black chair with cream colored wall behind her and light spotlight on her face.  
Transcript: Hello!  Have you experienced mental and emotional injury caused by racism, violence, humiliation, discrimination, or/and hate crimes.  Not only these but did you experience emotional pain/stress from watching the news, social media, at work, school, etc.  Did these feelings as a person of color (POC) make you feel unsafe and vulnerable in the community simply for existing in your own skin? 
If so- you experienced Racial trauma or Racial Based Traumatic Stress (RBTS) in which we will discuss about.  
For examples:  
For Blacks-  repeated exposure to footage or written accounts of police brutality against other Black people.
For Asians- reading different stories or news related to Asian hate during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Perhaps, some of you may not have experienced these things yourself, but the impact of the information can cause significant distress, especially if it reminds you of previous experiences of racism and discrimination.
For examples:
-Exposure to racial or ethnic stereotypes such as minority model myth (m3).
-Fears about your or others’ personal safety
-Witnessing a racist abuse of loved ones.
-Direct exposure to racist abuse or discrimination: This may be hearing racist stereotypes at work or being the recipient of a racial slur.
-Others not taking experiences of racism seriously: This may happen when people question if someone’s experience was real.
The list of racial trauma is unlimited.
Race-based traumatic stress (RBTS) can be expressed as:
-Re-experiencing distressing events
-Chronic stress 
-Physical Pain
-Health Issues
Now we will discuss about the important key of practicing self-care.  Racial trauma can affect both your mental and physical health, so it’s important to take care of yourself.  Here’s some coping skills that may help include:
-Make lifestyle changes such as healthy eating, exercise, prayer/meditation, or participate in activism against racial injustice.
-Connect and talk to like-minded people such as family, friends, allies, or POC about your feelings in a safe space.
-Talk to a therapist. 
-Limit your time on social media or the news.
-Avoid people or triggers and set boundaries.
-Rest, sleep
In closing- Racial trauma is a serious challenge that affects millions of people every day. It is important for you to know that you are being seen and heard which is the key to starting the healing process.  Never forget that you're not alone, we're all in this together.

Transcript: Hello! I teach yoga. No, we will not be doing body movement known as asana today.  I will show you how to do pranayama. It means breath control. Yes, it’s part of yoga! If you feel stressed, can’t focus, or have too much heat in your body, Try this breathing technique called cooling breath. It will help you feeling calm and more cool in your body. How does it work? Fold your tongue like a taco and suck in through your tongue. Exhale through your nose. Inhale through mouth and exhale through nose. If you struggle to fold your tongue, you can make your mouth in o-shaped. Inhale through your mouth and exhale through your nose. Inhale and exhale for around 2-3 minutes until you feel calm. This is a great opportunity if something happens at the moment. Try this breath work! Congratulations, you are practicing yoga. This is India’s culture and tradition. If you already tried this breath work or practicing yoga asana, I encourage you to recognize on what’s happening in India today. COVID-19 is very serious in India and need your support. What can you do? You can sign the petition. You can call your rep to demand actions from your country to support India. You can donate to mutual aid or nonprofit organizations. Make sure you do your research before donating. Thank you.

Video Transcript: Hello I’m Ida Mojahedi, president of Southern California Asian Deaf Association (SCADA), I’m in solidarity with CAD and Cal-Ed to oppose SB 692.  SB 692 is dangerous to our DHH students, especially our Deaf Asian community
We’re against SB 692 WHY? It will affect DHH children to become isolated from their deaf peers. It can lead to serious language deprivation, especially foreign people who have no access.  Also, their mental health is very critical because they need to have social and communication skills with their peers. 
As you see the sample letter, all you have to do is copy the letter in the sure to explain (3 reasons) why you oppose it with bullets. You see the senator’s email address.  Send each letter to each senator.
Again, we, SCADA, oppose this SB 692 and in solidarity with CAD and Cal-Ed.

Video Transcript: Derrian: Hello! My name is Derrian and I’m SCADA’s 2021 Lunar New Year chairperson. We’re thrilled to announce our Lunar New Year plans! This year will be different since we need to accommodate our current circumstances with the ongoing pandemic and ensure our members’ safety. We will be providing a cooking demonstration of a famous Vietnamese food dish, alongside teaching culture and Lunar New Year history. It is our honor to introduce our chef, Jenny! *gesture to off screen*
Jenny: Hello! My name is Jenny Roman. I was born in South Vietnam. When I was six years old, my family immigrated to Southern California, so I grew up here. Today, I’m excited to announce that I will show you how to cook a popular Vietnamese dish. I’d like you to guess the name of this dish. We will post a cooking demonstration with the name of this dish and simple instructions on how to cook on February 12. I’m going to give you a little hint. Maybe some of you might know. So, this popular dish was mainly influenced by the French. France colonized Northern and Southern Vietnam in the late 1800s and influenced the Vietnamese culture in many ways. We recognize that some of Vietnamese foods are actually influenced by French cuisine. So, the dish that I’m going to show you was influenced from the French, but the Vietnamese added their own distinct flavor. I’m excited to show you on February 12! Happy Lunar New Year!
