    ❤️ #Repost @ritamixa ・・・ Went home for the first time in 3 years with a mission... nothing like I’ve typically done which was to just show face & dip but to actually heal a part of my inner child that’s been wounded for so long. ⁣ ⁣ I don’t talk about this often Bc it’s so painful but me and mom got a complicated relationship! Every time I’d see other folx close with their moms, it felt weird Bc I could never connect to what that felt like until recently. ⁣ ⁣ You see me and mom had an 8 month hiatus this year, where I chose to not speak to her...funny thing is that it started a lil before @healingoutlaod launched & gave me clarity about why I was doing HOL... almost as if I was trying to find the answer to me + mom’s relationship thru listening to others share stories about their familial relationships. ⁣ ⁣ So this time around, I came home with a mission to do some inner work & heal w/mom. Never did I think we’d come to this point in our lives to actually talk about our personal issues/conflicts. Never did I think the day would come that my mom would ask about HOL & tell me she was proud of me. Bc you see, it’s hard to have hope when you’ve been wronged. ⁣ ⁣ But this time around it was diff & we put our attachments/egos to the side to talk to each other, finally like mother & daughter. I felt seen + heard + apologized to. I also wanna give mom credit for doing her own inner work to come to this point in taking accountability for her actions that hurt me. Finally, I felt for the first time warm feelings towards my mom. ⁣ ⁣ Not gonna more to the details about what took place Bc y’all gonna have to listen to this convo on a future HOL episode 😉😜 but just know that this episode is very special and one of the rawest ones yet! ⁣ ⁣ I truly believe in breaking intergenerational trauma and moving into healing & EVEN MORE after this home visit. I never wanted to be like my mom but now I know what it’s like to be just like her—someone who laughs a lot, is hella loud, and is so compassionately for/giving. She said we can’t change the past, but we can move forward to the future & focus on the present. ⁣ ⁣ Today, I take so much pride in being my mother’s daughter 💕

Food is our connector, and for Lao people it is our shared bonding experience.

    (1/3) “For years I had been resigned to the false idea that the path to my cultural heritage and "Lao-ness" was blocked, because of the turmoil with my parents and past negative experiences within the refugee community. In many ways, I left being Lao behind to pursue my career and life out in Los Angeles. When I went to Laos during the shooting of my documentary, a part of me that was long dormant was awakened. Yes because the people and the food, but even more-- the ground and the spirit charged me like a battery. When I came home I became more engaged with Lao American organizations, found like minded individuals and set to be Lao my way. That energy created Laos Angeles-- a LA based, progressive and inclusive community. We seek to support one another and amplify our identity/representation in mainstream media.” - @iamkulap ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kulap Vilaysack is a writer and director.

    Hollywood— love the progress, but we feel the need to remind you that not all Asians are the same. Lao, Hmong and other Southeast Asians can tell your stories and have their own to tell too. Let it be known that we have a DEEP bench of acting talent!!

I live in Burbank - it’s a great location for me as I need to be close to so many places for my work - I’m an actor! :) —————— Where is your family from?

I am a SAG actor and have co-starred on TV, been in films, and many commercials - I love acting so much.  I take tons of classes, coaching, dance, and piano and voice lessons….whew! One day I know I will be a famous Lao-American actor…..I FEEL IT! :)))) So much is changing in Hollywood - please keep your fingers crossed for me! —————— What would you like to recommend to the people? I recommend Lao food and one day I want to visit Laos!  I want to help Lao children and I’m looking for a way to do that.  I want to find or create an organization that will help me give back. —————— What other self-identified Laotian person should we know about and why? I am just beginning to find and connect with the Lao community here in LA - I moved here a year ago and I’m SUPER excited to connect with my roots…..I hope you will connect with me on Instagram and follow me on my journey! . . . . . . #LaosAngeles #LaosAngelesRoots #laos #lao #peopleoflaos #laotian #hmong #iumien #laotianamerican #southeastasian #representationmatters #community #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #refugee #refugeestories  #aapi #inspire #dream #support #allboatsrise #CommunityOverCompetition - #regrann
