TRAKTIVIST is extremely excited to introduce our newest team member RHIAN MOORE!

Rhian Moore is a Content Manager at TRAKTIVIST. Having grown up as a Burmese-American in the San Gabriel Valley before attending Pomona College, this past year she worked to complete her senior thesis on Burmese music in diaspora. This journey sparked a lifelong interest in Southeast Asian music, which will be further explored during her 2018-19 Fulbright grant in Malaysia.

The intersection between Rhian's undergraduate education as a music major with her work in the AAPI community as a student intern at Pomona College’s Asian American Resource Center has resulted in a passion for increasing exposure and accessibility to Asian American music in the U.S. As part of TRAKTIVIST, she hopes to contribute towards creating space for Asian American representation not just in artists we see and hear on stage, but also in the people behind the scenes who help shape a listener’s experience.
