Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month
May is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month in the US, and it’s when we honor the contributions, diverse cultures, and experiences of Asians and Pacific Islanders (or “APIs,” as some of us like to call ourselves at Postman). When it comes to Postman’s journey toward an API-first world, our founders are part of a long history of Asian and Pacific Islanders entrusting much of their aspirations in America, harnessing its entrepreneurial opportunities to prosper and pay it forward, while sharing their knowledge and culture.
