NETWORK OF ENTERTAINING ASIAN AMERICAN TALENT

New York City may elect its first Asian-American to citywide office

For the first time, three women won Nobels in the sciences. This should be no surprise. America elected its first black president, and next month New York City may elect its first Asian-American to citywide office.

In physics class at M.I.T., I sit at a table of seven women and two men. As one of the two, I won’t be surprised if any of my female classmates wins the Nobel Prize in Physics one day.
