Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Ren Hsieh. I’m the Executive Director of The Dynasty Project and Content Editor for FastbreakNYC.com. I’m also a blogger for OurChinatown.org and currently a guest curator at the Museum of Chinese In America where I’m developing a project on the history of athletics in New York Chinatown.
What is the Dynasty Project?
The Dynasty Project is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that promotes and supports athletics as a healthy lifestyle choice in Asian American communities. Our programs focus on serving local Asian American youth in underprivileged communities by creating and sponsoring sports leagues, camps, educational efforts and community outreach events embedded in their neighborhoods. We hope to provide an alternative to the pitfalls often found in high needs communities while also providing a healthy form of recreation and socialization.
