Excited to kick off #AsianPacificAmericanHeritageMonth at @unmc @NebraskaMed with incredible panelists and thought leaders.

As we have learned in the last year, we all have much to learn about inclusion and it is helpful to approach with a sense of humility.

"The #AAPI community is critical to building our future.

All voices need to be heard in our community and our med center."

- Chancellor @jeffreypgold on #AAPIHeritageMonth
"I have had dear friendships with members of the #AAPI community since high school and college. We have so much to learn from our colleagues."

- @NebraskaMed CEO Dr. Jim Linder

Growing up as an adopted Asian American, I've always found difficulty making sense of my identity.

As #APAHM comes to a close, here is my attempt to articulate just that and what I’m doing about it – a thread.

My name is Annie. A lot of people assume Wu is my last name when they find me on social media since it's @Annie_Wu_22.

My last name is actually Henry, which is the last name of my adoptive family. They chose to incorporate my Chinese last name as my middle name. ImageImage
I was adopted as a baby and haven't been back to Asia since. I was adopted into a white family in a VERY white town.

Growing up, I never felt different – even though I was usually one of the only non-white children. In fact, I don't even think I realized this most of the time. ImageImageImage

"I started as a Layout Artist at Pixar in 1997 and for the past 23 years, I have worked on thirteen feature films, numerous short films, TV specials and theme park projects. Beginning with ‘The Incredibles’ in 2004, I have been the Director of Photography for four features and -
two theatrical shorts. As a cinematographer, I am responsible for the cinematic design of each film and leading a team of Camera and Staging Artists to photograph, compose and choreograph the staging of each scene.
A favorite of all the films I have worked on at Pixar is the short film ‘Bao’. Like Asian Pacific Islander American Heritage Month, the film celebrates our unique culture.
