ຂໍຂອບໃຈພິເຊດໝູ່ Teresa ທີ່ແນະນຳໃຫ້ເລື່ອງສື່ສັງຄົມ.

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Kyle, but you can call me Gao as well. Apparently, my Lao name is Gao (ກ້າວ), as in Gao Na (ກ້າວໜ້າ), which means to advance or to progress. Ironically, I remember only one uncle who called me by that name, but as I grew up, he slowly stopped calling me Gao because everyone else simply refers to me as Kyle. After having learned more about the Lao language (check out SEASSI at UW-Madison for college credits in Southeast Asian languages like Lao, Vietnamese, Thai, Hmong, and more!), I realized it has quite an auspicious meaning, so I’d like to keep it moving forward.

My objective with this blog is to practice my Lao writing skills in a casual manner while at the same time exploring aspects of what it means to be Lao-American. Apologies in advance if I make any grammatical, spelling, or other language errors. The English version (i.e. the version that is hopefully free of errors) of what I write will typically be provided in case I fail to properly convey my thoughts. I hope you enjoy the topics about which I write as much as I do!

Special thanks to Teresa for helping me learn how to leverage social media.
