MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (KABC) --Our ABC7 Cool Kid for Thursday, Jan. 14, is Jason Fong, who created a blog to address issues involving immigrants and the Asian-American experience.
Fong said one comment from a presidential candidate was all it took for him to head down his path of writing.
"Jeb Bush's controversial comments referring to Asian Americans as 'anchor babies.' And I just wanted to give Asian Americans a chance to present our own stories," he said.
He started a website, jasonfongwrites.blogspot.com, which provides information on the latest issues and a voice.
"I don't expect to change everyone's mind because people are really stuck in what they believe, but hopefully if it gets them asking questions then that's all I can hope for," he said.
He's also encouraging people to use #MyAsianExperience on Twitter as a way to stir action.
"Beyond which party and which political preferences you have, I just think it's really important for us to get involved in the political process," he said.
Jason hopes by turning around words that can hurt, he can provide a place to help people through his blog.
