This is Maya Lin. She inspires me.


Her design was chosen for Vietnam War Veteran Memorial

At the age of 21, while she was in Yale

Being an asian, she faced heavy public criticism

She stood behind her design. Rationalizing patiently

She knew what her design will serve

Eventually she won people's heart

Her design, the memorial, evokes an emotion

It enabled a Catharsis experience like no other

Caharsis is the process of releasing, and thereby providing relief from, strong or repressed emotions.

She went ahead and designed several memorials for USA

Thats her now, Maya Lin

Really speaks a lot to the challenges faced as a minority! How did you learn about her story?
