The Yellow Journal--AKA sfsu-yj.com--is an annual, online publication where students enrolled in Asian American studies classes can submit their creative expressions including poetry, photography, video, interviews, and short stories. Written by students enrolled in Asian American Studies, the site also works to help students with key terms used in Asian American Studies. This year, the Yellow Journal Editorial team feature students majoring in Asian American Studies and other disciplines.
Sofia Ramos is in her last year as an Asian American Studies major. She loves reading, writing and sketching, so she joined the Yellow Journal to continue her hobbies.
Chanfou Saelee is a senior majoring in Asian American Studies. He chose this major because of his passion in community work, which is also why he joined the Yellow Journal. After receiving his Bachelors Degree, he plans on pursuing an MA in Asian American Studies or Creative Writing.
Markus Molon is a junior majoring in Biochemistry. He is also the assistant music director for a Catholic parish and an assistant soccer coach. After taking several Asian American studies classes last semester, he became interested in learning more about his ethnic identity and subsequently joined the Yellow Journal. His interests include video games, sports and scientific advancements.
