Herschel is a Filipino American who was born in Mountain Veiw, but grew up in Bakersfield, CA. While a student at SFSU, he's taught at Denman Middle School with Pin@y (Pinay/Pinoy) Educational Partnerships (PEP) and is looking to be a copywriter in the future. We talk about how he distanced himself from Filipinos while growing up in a predominantly white neighborhood, but then found a sense of inportance in his culture after taking an Ethnic Studies class at De Anza College—an awesome community college institution in Cupertino.
