Calvin Sun of The Monsoon Diaries to be on Radio Freedom tonight!

Tonight on the Angel Clark Show on Radio Freedom we have Calvin Sun!

CALVIN SUN is awesome and writes about himself in the third person all the time. Born and raised in NYC, Calvin graduated from Columbia University in 2008 with a B.A. in biochemistry and was Vice President of his class. He was the founder of the Columbia University National Undergraduate Film Festival and served as the President of the Columbia University Asian American Alliance (AAA). During his presidency, AAA’s accomplishments were profiled on CNN and Sparknotes, and his organization was selected that year by AngryAsianMan and APAsForProgress as one of the “Top 10 Collegiate Organizations for AAPI Students” in the country. Calvin’s work has also been featured in Hyphen and Asiance Magazine.

In the media, Calvin had made appearances as a regular panelist and guest commentator on MTV’s “The Freshmen” and is an award winning independent filmmaker. He is known for his films on Asian American stereotypes and female body image, the latter of which won the inaugural One to Watch Audience Award at the 2007 Asian American International Film Festival. His work on Asian American female body image has been featured in various articles and books, including The American Beauty Industry Encyclopedia.

Calvin currently attends SUNY Downstate College of Medicine in NYC and is the President of his class. He also runs a business in healthcare, will serve as the incoming President of the Columbia College Young Alumni, and sits on the Board of Directors for the East Coast Asian American Student Union (ECAASU), a national 501(c)(3) non-profit and the oldest and largest ethnic-interest collegiate organization in the country. In his spare time (if any!), Calvin cultivates a passion in hip hop choreography and South Asian dance while paying for medical school by working odd jobs as a bartending instructor, research assistant, events promoter, and DJ.

Finally, Calvin is an expert in underwater fire prevention and rescuing small animals. Rumor has it that he performed a transurethal guided laser induced prostatectomy on a male squirrel with his bare feet all while doing pushups with one finger.

Calvin will be joining us to discuss his most recent trip to Iran.  Calvin’s last interview may be heard here.  Proof Negative of Freedomizer Radio also joins us!
