My design for the Rejoice the Vote! contest was inspired by the youth in her short films. My first film “Chinese Girl Wants Vote‚” about Asian American suffragist Dr. Mabel Lee is currently exhibiting at the Levine Museum of the New South. Although it was conceived for the celebration of the centennial of the 19th amendment ratification giving women the right to vote, it also became a delightful response to anti-Asian sentiment during quarantine, and inspiration for others to learn more about voting and encourage positive change. I was also listed as Charlotte’s Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 in 2019. Still based in Charlotte, I continue to act in various nonprofit and commercial productions, produce short films, and create interdisciplinary projects. Watch my 1st film through North Carolina Digital Heritage Center. “What a stunning video about the life of Dr. Mabel Lee.” – Coline Jenkins
