In July, Trazo self-published her first children’s book titled “We Are Inspiring: The Stories of 32 Inspirational Asian American Women.” Trazo said the idea of creating a children’s book highlighting notable female Asian American figures came to her as she was exploring a local bookstore in San Jose, California.

While looking at the shelves, she came across a book about black women in history, but failed to find a similar book about Asian American women.

Another activist Trazo said she included is Helen Zia, a Chinese American journalist who promoted Asian American rights.

Tamai said it is meaningful to make a book that highlights strong female Asian American figures for children, especially because representation can empower young children.

“To people who aren’t Asian American, I hope the stories are inspiring to them.”
