TODAY I joined Michelle Park Steel, a Korean/American elected to the Orange County (California) Board of Supervisors, for an unexpected press conference with the Korean media. Michelle was poised and calm through it all, while I was flustered and overwhelmed
Like I posted yesterday, Koreans have taken a keen interest in me, and are astounded that I was chosen to speak at the Convention. There were several requests for more interviews. One reporter said he was proud of me, and was glad that Koreans would have a voice with Mr. Trump.This is quite a remarkable turn of events. When my parents submitted news of my being a New Mexico delegate to a local Korean newspaper, they were told that it would violate IRS rules to publish it. Another Korean newspaper never responded to my requests for a paid advertisement.
The RNC roll call vote was exciting. A spokesperson from each state gave a short, but rousing speech. Donald Trump officially clinched the Republican nomination.
(Shin is a delegate from New Mexico. She is scheduled to speak before the entire convention on Thursday. She will be providing her thoughts and photos throughout the convention for AsAmNews.)
