Many Asian Americans are caught up in a battle on two fronts - internally and externally. Within the family, connecting with parents is a unique challenge for emerging Asian American adults especially in navigating the tension between personal desires and family expectation. Externally, relationships with friends, co-workers, and society at large can be challenging especially for emerging adults. How do I make friends after college? How do you connect on the job to ensure career success? How do you deal with racism and discrimination? How can I stay true to my Asian heritage while also assimilating within American culture?
It is questions like these that inspired the development of Pearl, a diverse network that exists to help Asian Americans flourish in Christ.
Pearl accomplishes its work through moving people from relational brokenness and discontent to relational healing and wholeness. Simply put, Pearl exists to help Asian Americans build better relationships, with their loved ones, colleagues, and society. Through producing written resources, group gatherings, and one-on-one mentoring, Pearl hopes to empower Asian Americans to live to their fullest God-given potential.
