After Walnut Grove High School opened this year, multiple clubs and organizations emerged within the school. At the start of the academic year, the newly established Asian Student Union, founded by sophomores Hanyu Ma and Baiwen Yin, aims to represent various Asian cultures within the school by offering mutual support among the different Asian communities.

The prevalence of Asian culture has increased in the United States due to the growing number of Asian immigrants. The Asian population in the United States has been steadily rising, leading to the establishment of more clubs and organizations that foster appreciation for these diverse cultures.

“The WG Asian Student Union aims to offer students engaging and enriching events that allow them to immerse themselves in the unique Asian culture and gain a deeper understanding,” said Baiwen, the club’s vice president. “Our club organizes events to promote and educate others about Asian culture, empowering students to make a positive impact in their community through volunteer activities.”

The establishment of the ASU enables students to showcase and display their Asian heritage and cultural customs through the club. Students can participate in ASU meetings, fostering connections with like-minded individuals and promoting camaraderie among students.

Despite its brief existence, the Asian Student Union has already attracted a diverse membership. “We take pride in the diverse demographics of our club,” said Hanyu, the club president. “Our members come from different Asian backgrounds, as well as non-Asian students who share an interest in Asian culture.”

The club plans to expand its reach to other local communities by organizing events for Asian Student Union members. Additionally, they intend to collaborate with other student organizations to foster diversity and cultural understanding within the school. The club envisions gradual growth and aims to achieve this through community-based events.
