The Asian Pacific Student Association (APSA) is presenting an annual spoken word and hip hop showcase/workshop event called, “ Pass the Mic: Reclaim Your Roots.” Through a fusion of spoken word pieces and hip hop, we hope that participants and the audience will be reminded of their roots… I’ll be here tonight with Steph representing forWord!

I’m satisfied. “Break Time’s Over” by...

I am also...
