The second installment of the AACC Corner is "Life, Lemons, and Lili" by LiLi Johnson, a fourth year graduate student in American Studies, focusing on visual culture and kinship in Asian American family formations. She has been a Graduate Assistant at the AACC for 2.5 years. She loves her cats, ShuShu and BaoBao, and gives incredible relationship advice. (We can attest to this personally.)

This weekend I dyed my hair blue in the culmination of a relatively short but long-to-me hair journey. If anyone is interested in having pastel “mermaid hair,” then this post is for you. I hope it gives all of you readers the courage to be brave about your hair because everything is temporary and college is the time for experimenting. (I missed my hair chance in college but did manage to get two tattoos).
The process occurred in two stages. I had never dyed my hair before this. In December before Winter break, I went to get my hair lightened at The Mane Room under The Omni Hotel under Carolina’s care. I brought with me all of my misconceptions about how long it takes to get pastel blue grey hair. I thought it would take 3 hours max to go from natural black hair to pastel blue grey. The appointment took five hours. She only had time to put bleach in my hair, wash it out, and blow-dry it. At the end of the appointment, my hair was blonder than I thought it would be but Carolina said that it would not take to the blue grey. I walked out with blonde hair, which was a big change for everyone. However, the next day my advisor, Mary Lui, made no comment on my first big hair change.
The main motivating factor to follow through on my pastel hair journey was when I saw a picture of myself at the AACC Leadership Dinner. I was wearing an orange dress and my hair was just as orange. I made an appointment the next day and got my blue hair less than a week later. The process took even longer than the first time. She lightened my hair with 40% peroxide and when a tiny bit would touch her finger she’d exclaim “Ouch!” which scared me. But my hair turned platinum. She had to blow dry the platinum hair and then paint the blue dye in and then wash it, condition it, and blow-dry it. I went in at noon on Sunday and came out at 6:30pm. It didn’t occur to me that my hair now matches the AACC logo. And when I saw Mary Lui in class today, she again did not make any comment. I’m not sure what it will take for Professor Lui to comment about my hair.
If you’d like to see my pastel blue hair, feel free to come to the AACC on Monday nights!
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!

Join Mind Matters for our first-ever RACE & MENTAL HEALTH student panel, featuring four Yale student panelists who look forward to sharing their thoughts on the intersection of racial identity and mental wellbeing with you. This will be the perfect event for anybody who is even vaguely interested in ideas surrounding what it means (or in some cases, if it is even possible) to be "healthy" or "well" in the face of racism, xenophobia and prejudice both on and off-campus. Each speaker will briefly share their experiences and thoughts on the topic, and Q&A will follow. We sincerely hope to see you there!

We begin our series of Fulbright and Rhodes/Marshall/Mitchell information sessions this week – details can be found on our calendar. Please encourage students you think might make strong candidates to consider major fellowships like the Fulbright, Rhodes, and Marshall. Daunted by these big fellowships, many wonderful students don’t consider applying and your encouragement means a great deal to them, and can ensure that they don’t miss out on a great opportunity.
The Fulbright will fund a year’s study (including of creative & performing arts), an independent project, or the teaching of English in any of more than 140 countries. The Marshall, Mitchell, Rhodes, and other fellowships will fund one to three years’ graduate study in the UK or Ireland. These are only a few of the fellowships open to seniors, many more can be found on our website: http://funding.yale.edu/.
Prerequisites: Intellectual curiosity and a sense of humor. Prior knowledge or finance experience not required.
The Yale Investments Office, which stewards the $25 billion Yale Endowment, is seeking analysts to assist in managing Yale’s financial assets. Past and current analysts possess diverse academic backgrounds – we’ve hired natural science, social science, humanities, and engineering majors. We look for intelligent individuals eager to pursue new challenges and work for a meaningful cause. Over the last 20 years, the Yale Endowment has contributed $14 billion to the University’s operating budget, enabling Yale to maintain its generous financial aid, extraordinary teaching, and state of the art research. Working to generate these billions of dollars for the University is the Yale Investments Office staff, which, over the same 20 year period, has produced the highest annualized returns of any college endowment.
Analysts will work directly with senior staff, including Chief Investment Officer David Swensen and Senior Director Dean Takahashi, meet and interact with some of the world’s leading investment managers, and help identify Yale’s next investment opportunities. Analysts will have significant responsibility and will be tasked with a variety of projects and roles. Examples of past projects include:
• Building a model of a financial swap
• Researching the merits of investing in China
• Analyzing the impact of inflation on real estate and timber investments
Most importantly, analysts benefit from a collaborative, enthusiastic, and mission-driven office culture.
