19th Anniversary May 22nd, 2011 at Old Sacramento & Westfield

“The Pacific Rim Street Fest is a major program of the Asian Pacific Rim Foundation, which has been designated as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization by the Internal Revenue Service.

The Sacramento region reflects the growing diverse Asian Pacific population of California. To honor and celebrate that cultural richness and ethnic diversity, Restaurateur Frank Fat and community leaders created the Pacific Rim Street Fest in 1993.

The street fest is planned and staged by volunteers from more than 15 Asian Pacific community groups. Their goals are to broaden the awareness and understanding of the Asian Pacific heritage, to showcase the many positive contributions to the community at large, and to lend support to cultural endeavors in the form of grants and scholarships,” (http://www.pacificrimstreetfest.com/about_us.html).

May is Asian month and here in Sacramento the Asian community hosts a festival each May to help educate and promote diversity. Myself and Teen Queen 2011, Christina Yan, were able to attend and had so much fun. At the festival I spoke about my platform, The power of Unity, and Christina spoke about hers, Water Sanitation. Not only that but we educated the community about what Miss Asia Sacramento represents, promotes, and advocates for.
