WE ARE ASIAN


Ever since the outbreak of COVID-19, the number of racist assaults and hate crimes towards the Asian has been skyrocketing all over the world, significantly in America. We, the Asians, are punched, kicked, spitted on, mocked, yelled at, and shooed away through no fault of our own, and the media is sadly flooded with such heart-breaking and infuriating cases.

The tastiest food, the most culturally intact heritage, the hardest-working community, and the bravest medical staff – those are what make us Asian, and no punch, kick or spit should ever wreck our pride on being so.

Seine Kongruangkit / Art Director


Named after the river in Paris, I was born and raised in a city where people spit into the river; Bangkok. As a queer person of color, I strive to use my creativity to solve problems and empower people, and that has brought me into the advertising world where I created ‘We Are Asian’
