Asian Pacific American students today face more hurdles than ever before, with issues like attacks against Asians and the lack of mental well-being resources. To address the evolving needs of APA students, McDonald’s is hosting the first-ever APA Next Summit, a gathering of prominent industry leaders, celebrities and students to discuss topics that are top-of-mind for Asian American youth, such as college admissions, mental health and finding your passion. The summit is free to attend and will be held at the historic Great Hall at Cooper Union on Saturday, November 12 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. EST and will also be available virtually via livestream.
Covering topics ranging from college admissions to mental health and financial literacy, the APA Next Summit will feature a line-up of prominent speakers from all walks of life, including star of Netflix’s hit show Partner Track Arden Cho, TikTok finance influencer Vivian Tu (aka “Your Rich BFF”), CEO of Nguyen Coffee Supply Sahra Nguyen, and Founder of Brown Girl Therapy Sahaj Kaur Kohli.
