As part of celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, UCUCC is inviting local artist Jeannie Rak (she/her) to share her musical gifts with our congregation on Sunday, May 15th. Here is Jeannie’s story from her website, jeannierak.com.
“Eighteen years of growing up in Bangkok, Thailand. Five years of completing an undergrad in B.C., Canada. A Masters in Teaching during the three years and counting in the Emerald City, Evergreen State. My life has been a series of twists and turns—of trying to find where I fit into life’s grand schemes. I started by trying on teaching: the most difficult and most rewarding occupation of my life. It is an honorable and rewarding career; I have passion for it yet.
But music has always been the love of my life. And so, a crazy journey begins! I am currently writing and recording original music in Seattle, living with my wonderful wife, and taking our 15 year-old corgi on wooded walks. ”
