Chloé Zhao, Olivia Rodrigo, and Saweetie Among Gold House's 100 Most Impactful APIs List

May is Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and Gold House is kicking things off by naming its prestigious A100. On May 3, the nonprofit group launched its annual list to recognize Asians and Pacific Islanders who make an impact on their community. This year’s honorees include entertainers like Oscar-award-winning director Chloé Zhao, record-breaking singer Olivia Rodrigo, and K-Pop phenomenons Blackpink.

The judges — who included Daniel Dae Kim, Michelle Yeoh, Lea Salonga, and more — also selected were Saweetie, Kelly Marie Tran, Olivia Munn, Auli’i Cravalho, Naomi Osaka, H.E.R., and Maitreyi Ramakrishnan, to name a few. And, of course, our first South Asian vice president, Kamala Harris, was highlighted on the list as well. As Sandra Oh once said, “It’s an honor just to be Asian.” Check out Gold House’s full selection of 2021 honorees here.
