About the Event

In this session, Jess Song will guide us to a conversation about emotional navigation as Asian Americans. What kind of conflicts and challenges have you had as Americans growing up in Asian households? How do your parents cope with their emotions?

We are bringing on Jess Song from Back To Self again to continue the conversation and bring us to a journey of understanding our emotion and feelings. Attendance to the first session is not required. 

Bring a cup of tea, find your quiet space away from your close quarter, and open up Zoom to chat with us!

About Jess Song:

Jess spent 10+ years incorporating counseling and emotional development frameworks into non-profit and education programs for underserved / immigrant / 2nd generation / trauma-surviving youth (and the adults working with them).  She focuses her curriculum on emotional language, core values, communication/advocacy, and healthy relationships. 

Jess founded Back to Self to help shift how we approach our emotional selves through journaling, aiming to provide perspective-shifting frameworks in an affordable, practical, and applicable way. She invites a much-needed dialogue on the relationship between culture, community, identity, and the impact intersecting worlds have on our emotional and mental well-being.
