Anti-Asian Hate Crimes – America vs. Humanity with Mia Korf
Anti-Asian hate crimes are continuing to grow in America. Are these “hate crimes” the same as racism when perpetrated against blacks in America? Is America in a battle with its own diversity and its citizens of color? When will America embrace humanity over hatred, division and oppression?
Mia Korf’s escapades as a performer cross-cross the worlds of Broadway, Off-Broadway, Regional Theater, Television, Film, commercials/voice-overs and the Los Angeles live music scene.
Mia started out in life as a classical violinist; she had her first lesson before her 3rd birthday and was mentored by Hamao Fujiwara of the Julliard School before attending Cornell University. Mia is also a certified Mediator and an accredited Suzuki Violin teacher. Mia recently returned to her hometown of Ithaca, NY to help care for her mom and spend time with her daughter (Cornell University AAP ‘23). She has spent the last few months settling into her 1928 Craftsman home and creating jewelry for her Etsy shop ViaMiaDesigns. She’s thrilled to reconnect with Bill Myers and contribute to his conversation of inspiration.
