CityStream: Alyssa London’s Culture Story
CityStream: Alyssa London’s Culture Story

As a child, Seattle’s Alyssa London remembers the challenges she faced on the playground growing up as a member of the Tlingit-Haida Tribe. But thanks to her Tlingit grandfather, she learned about her roots and gained pride in her multicultural identity. That led Alyssa to Stanford University and the pageant stage as a top ten finalist in the Miss USA contest. Now, she’s formed a media company called Culture Story, and she’s the author of a children’s book, "Journey of the Freckled Indian: A Tlingit Culture Story," which she hopes will help kids embrace their heritage. Tatevik Aprikyan has her story.
