Our "Share Your Shine, Tell Your Story" features an Anthropology Professor at CSU Los Angeles. ChorSwang Ngin was born in China and grew up in Malaysia. Her passion for education blossomed during secondary school where teachers from diverse backgrounds and experiences taught her the endless possibilities to be grasped by learning about religions, cultures, languages, and classes. Swan has made significant contributions to Asian American Studies through her work and research, which she now passes down to each of her students, all from diverse cultures and backgrounds. Swan is also a published author and playwright, who along with revered Asian American author CY Lee co-wrote the play titled, The Houseguest from Xinjiang. She is also part of the Orange County Human Relations Council, a nonprofit whose mission is to make the OC community a better place for all to live, to work, to do business and to seek out the causes of tension and conflict, discrimination and intolerance, and attempt to eliminate those causes. Swan has completed a manuscript titled, Identities on Trial: Asylum Seekers from Asia, to be published next year. You’ll definitely want to read her story.
