Our next feature is Rina Helt, a current third-year student at Johns Hopkins University.
Rina has lived in 7 different states including her current home in Michigan and apartment in Baltimore. Unlike Baltimore's dense urban areas, you can often spot houses sprinkled amidst the woods. Being in Baltimore has allowed her to meet interesting folks from all walks of life!
After observing her Japanese mother struggle to receive treatment, the disconnect between patient and provider became apparent. As she begins her medical journey, she witnesses how, similar to her mother, other women of color and young adults are not getting their needs met. Her goal evolved into empowering those individuals with confidence to make choices about their health.
What in the Health (WITH) became a platform for her to disseminate information about health in everyday language and build an online community to have those discussions. She hopes to expand the podcast to include more community outreach to local schools and organizations in Baltimore. The goal is to compile the most important information from their conversations with experts and sparking discussions around them in younger children.
The COVID-19 pandemic brought out a lot of issues in healthcare. She believes that the phobia associated with health, coupled with misinformation, created a need to openly discuss how one can remain safe and healthy.

Next up for Baltimore Hues is Stephen Ha, also known as Stemo! He is a sophomore at Johns Hopkins University with a passion for music. He is from Baltimore, formerly from the UIUC area until moving here in 2016. He writes music not for profit or money but simply for fun. There are some funds saved up from spotify, however he doesn’t withdraw for personal uses, rather to donate to any organizations that he feels passionate about.

He grew into music by listening to music and noticing patterns and in songs and figuring out how melodies work. Starting out on soundcloud and progressing onto spotify, he’s grown and learned a lot. (spotify: stemo) Most of his songs are not his own personal stories, instead are stories from sitting down and learning about other people’s experiences. He’s been writing up collabs with people, building up his platform on tiktok: and trying to build his connections with asian tik tokers. He has some stuff in the works right now: pre save his new song “Atypical Song”! Stay tuned to hear more from the amazingly talented Stephen Ha!

Our next feature is Fateha Zannath, a third-year undergraduate student at Johns Hopkins University!
She has lived in different places including her current home in suburban Georgia and the diverse, tight-knit urban environment of Baltimore city.
Being a Bangladeshi-American, first-gen limited-income, Muslim woman, she experienced racism in healthcare settings where she did not feel comfortable voicing her needs.
After another frustrating doctor appointment during her freshman year of college, she wanted a space for nuanced conversations about healthcare while being inclusive of different identities. It would be done without any paternalistic sentiments by simply breaking down expert advice in everyday language. What in the Health (WITH) became this outlet.
She said in reflection of her identity, "The Model Minority Myth puts our experiences at such an interesting intersection. There are so many nuances within it that I never know how to describe the APIDA experience. As I'm becoming older, I'm more careful about making sure I'm not speaking for communities that I'm not a part of."

My name is Andre Thien Vu, a junior majoring in Psychological and Brain Sciences and Natural Sciences at Hopkins. For me, NOON is a safe space for countless stories to be showcased and disseminated for you, the Reader, to be able to uncover one aspect of the diverse APIDA experience. ISSUE 3.0: Eminence allows the readers to understand the complicated and interconnected power dynamics and relationships that APIDA members face. I hope you enjoy this issue as well!!

Welcome back to Baltimore Hues ~

This feature presents Mary Song, a sophomore from Raleigh, North Carolina, studying Interdisciplinary Sculpture with a minor in Experimental Fashion and Photography at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). You can explore her instagram accounts: & , which display her passion for art and fashion while creating a community of individuals with similar interests.

Mary is currently remotely attending MICA at home, where she creates ceramics, soft sculpture, and photography as well as site-specific work. Her art actively highlights her Asian American identity. In fact, she has integrated rice grains in her sculptures to represent the duality of her Asian American identity. Mary has, furthermore, sparked important conversations about immigration, societal labels, and racism through her art.

In her free time, Mary often goes thrifting, which has allowed her to enhance her personal style. She, also, runs a shop on Etsy (bymarysong), where she sells her ceramic pottery and photograph prints. She has recently started making chic clay rings for her shop! In Baltimore, Mary has felt unconditional support and hopes to be inspired and grow as a multimedia artist! Check her out 🤪
