LLOTP’s team just keeps on growing. Let’s welcome our new blaogger, Alex Nok Phasy (likes to pronounce it ‘phase-sy’ for extra effect). Coming from Shakopee, Minnesota, he’s our in-house designer of all things digital, photojournalist with an eye for community, and is a huge Lao culture fanatic. Alex is a second generation Lao American with a Bachelor’s in Political Science, Global Studies and Asian American studies. Did I mention he’s studied Lao, Hmong, Japanese, and Korean?!
Who is Alex?
The last Lao food I ate was sticky rice and thum mak hoong at the Lao Assistance Center of Minnesota.
If I was stranded on an island, the one Lao thing I would have is: a Lao sword because that would ensure my survival on the island… kidding, probably my Khaen given to me by Ajan Xai of the Lao Heritage Foundation.
