Video: Breaking the stigma of arts through pursuing music as an Asian American student

Pressures from immigrant parents drove Zachary Bour and Daniel Oh to major in something 'real,' but their true passion is creating music

In the Asian American community, there is a negative stereotype around pursuing the arts. Zachary Bour and Daniel Oh said they chose to major in accountancy because it was seen by their family as professional. 

Their real passion was music.

While they both try to manage school and part-time jobs, they still make time for creating music to emotionally connect with other people.
