Non-F.A.T. Post 2: Akufuncture's Samuel Wang

It looks like I've been away from the blogging keyboard for quite some time... but not without good reason! Last month I was offered an opportunity to blog for, an online magazine that serves to "close the gap between Taiwan and the world" by promoting the achievements of Taiwanese and Taiwanese-Americans.

I met the King of Fashion:
Akufuncture's Sam Wang on Persistence
article by Michael Lin,

I got a chance to interview Samuel Wang, a fellow UCSD Triton alum, who created the Sino-chic streetwear company Akufuncture.  The clothing line fuses urban style together with Chinese culture, which Sam believes is one way to make Chinese culture cool again.

You can read the article in its entirety here.  

The interview is my first published piece beyond high school and outside of this blog.. perhaps it will lead to a guest position at the Times or Rolling Stone someday.  We all start somewhere, right? Enjoy... and happy reading!
