This first installment of the AACC Corner is "Life in HD" by Hiral Doshi, a senior in Berkeley. This is Hiral's fourth year as a staffer, so she basically knows everything there is to know about the AACC and about life in general. She is the swug we all want to be one day, which is why we asked her to write this column. Enjoy!

If you haven’t heard about the Oscar mix-up yet, you either live under a rock or are off social media completely (honestly, for both cases, I commend you: your girl has a thesis, 2 exams, and 2 papers before spring break and I could really do with some social isolation right now).
Naturally, after the fiasco, the whole world (but realistically, mostly the US because no one else has time to worry about this bs) was shook and social media went in. A personal favorite tweet was, “Damn I wish this happened on election night. For real.” But regardless of the many tweets, memes, and gifs that followed, no one was more shook than me. Not because I am invested in the Oscars (confession: I just watched the highlights reel) or watched all the nominated movies, but because if we live in a world where we’re incapable of reading an envelope in front of us properly, wtf are we doing?
As you go into midterm exams and as I wrap up this first (terrible) edition of “Life in HD”, here’s a piece of advice: remember to read the damn question. Don’t be the next Warren Beatty or Faye Dunaway (i.e. the super white names of the Oscar presenters who messed up). You’ll be on your way to an “A” in no time.
Still looking for that Spring Break bod? Hunting for healthy snacks on Yale's grease-filled campus? Come take a break with your favorite AACC Community & Social Engagement staffers and Yogis at Yale to do some squats, relax with yoga, and drink some smoothies from The Juice Bar!
If you're looking for a break from studying this week, please come join DisOrient this Wednesday (3/1) at 7pm at the AACC (295 Crown St) for a a screening of the short film, "That Sunday," by Rohit Pathak, followed by a conversation concerning sexual assault in South Asian communities. What are current prevailing attitudes towards sexual assault? How does the increasingly prevalent narrative of unchecked sexual assault in South Asia shape South Asians' self-conception abroad? Additionally, how can we capitalize on this increased focus to create positive change?

In the past week, Trump has rolled back protections for trans youth, pushed for harsher criminalization of undocumented immigrants, and proposed increased military spending with budget cuts across all other federal agencies. As crises mount, many have made urgent calls for solidarity across vulnerable communities. At our second ROAR meeting, we will complicate what it means to build meaningful coalitions, read from Black and indigenous feminists, ground ourselves in strategies of daily resistance, and take immediate action steps together.
Let’s call our reps, divest, pressure banks to defund the pipeline, coordinate fundraising efforts, and more. Let’s be the resistance we want to see.
ROAR [Read Organize and Resist] is a group for students to come together and discuss what’s on our minds, read works by ethnic studies scholars and community organizers, and equip ourselves to take material actions against fascism and white supremacy. Come join the AACC and the Asian American Studies Task Force on Tuesday, 3/7 from 5-6:30pm. Dinner will be provided. Everyone is welcome!
Come meet and hear the inspiring story of Ji Seong Ho, who escaped North Korea and traveled over 6000 miles on crutches to freedom in South Korea. Ji is the founder and president of NAUH (Now, Action and Unity for Human Rights), an organization that broadcasts information into North Korea, rescues North Korean refugees from China for resettlement in South Korea, and carries out creative projects on the streets of Seoul to raise awareness about the human rights situation in North Korea. Ji received international acclaim for his moving speech at the 2015 Oslo Freedom Forum. He has been active in mobilizing students to take action on behalf of North Korean human rights. After losing his left arm and leg in North Korea, he has also been a champion for the rights of people with disabilities and a strong advocate for Korean reunification.
At a time when media is almost exclusively focused on political issues such as nuclear proliferation and economic sanctions, come stand with Ji Seong Ho and ThiNK in solidarity for the actual North Korean people--those men, women, and children whom we often overlook.
Professor Gary Okihiro, a prominent scholar of comparative ethnic studies, will give a talk on scholarly involvement in Japanese American studies. In what different ways do Japanese and American scholars view and approach the Japanese American? What can we tell based on the differences? Come listen to the talk, then stick around for great discussion and snacks!
FREE JAPANESE AUTHENTIC green tea and mochi ice cream will be provided!
At noon on March 3rd, members of Students Unite Now will be gathering at Beinecke Plaza to speak out and write about our experiences of financial aid at Yale. The Student Income Contribution creates a divide on this campus along the lines of race and class and we believe that it is powerful to speak about how the Student Income Contribution affects our lives. So come! Join us in a moment of resilience, solidarity, and power as we tell our stories and demand that Yale listen to our experiences and act quickly to fully eliminate the Student Income Contribution.

Interested in North Korea but feel hopeless and powerless as to what you can do as a college student on the other side of the world? Come listen to North Korean defector Jung Gwang Il and share your ideas on media dissemination into North Korea. Mr. Jung survived three years of incarceration at the Yodok political prison camp in North Korea, and managed to escape to South Korea, where he established an NGO called No Chain. No Chain (The Association of North Korean Political Victims & Their Families) works to abolish the prison camp system in North Korea; advocates for the human rights situation in North Korea; rescues at-risk North Korean refugees in China; and sends outside information into North Korea.
Yale ThiNK (There's Hope in North Korea) and participants of the recent Yale International Relations Associations winter break research trip to South Korea will present their media project, a compilation of footage of student life, to Mr. Jung. Using helicopter drones, Mr. Jung will smuggle in the footage into North Korea’s black market, along with Hollywood movies and South Korean dramas. Learn about a simple, concrete way in which you can illuminate the most closed-off country in the world.
If you have any photos, videos, or other digital media you would like to share with the people of North Korea, please send them to email@example.com
