Each year, the United States recognizes May as Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month. At RISD, it is the unique stories of our staff, students, and faculty that make up our vibrant community and give us each the opportunity to learn something new every day. This month, we’re taking the opportunity to highlight Gina Borromeo, Curator of Ancient Art at the RISD Museum. Gina, originally from the City of Baguio, in the Philippines, moved to Rhode Island with her family when she was just fifteen years old. She was gracious enough to sit down and share her story with us.
