U-T: Filipino women sharing and writing their own history

U-T: Filipino women sharing and writing their own history

It occurred to Jen Amos that despite her involvement in community organizations and events that celebrated her Filipino and American identities, she needed something more.

“As a Filipino American woman, I’ve been told to be or do many things: Be American. Be Filipino. Know your history. Speak Filipino. Know your family roots. Don’t ask questions. Visit the Philippines more often. Lighten my skin. Lose weight. Get a stable job. …On and on and on. All of these kind, good intentioned suggestions and not once was I told, ‘Just be who you are. You are enough,’” she says. “With The Filipino American Woman Project, we celebrate the Filipino American women as they already are. Our underlying message is: You are enough, and we want to celebrate you by sharing your story.”

She started The Filipino American Woman Project last year through her online marketing agency, Social Turtles, and uses Facebook Live to broadcast the show with interviews featuring other women who identify as Filipino and American. After looking online to learn more about the history of women like her, who came before her, and coming up mostly empty, she decided to have women speak for themselves on what it means to be part of this community.

Grow Your Instagram to 7500+ Followers

Back in early 2015, I did a case study on the Social Turtles Instagram account (@socialturtles). At the end of that first case study, we humbly grew our following to 400+. Intrigued by our results, we kept the case study going and within 12 months, grew our following to an additional 7500+! What you’re about to download are the slides of my last presentation on our case study. While attendees paid $100 to attend and see these slides, I’m giving them to you for FREE.
