PIERRE HABIS: Hello, I'm Pierre Habis of Union Bank. Diversity is one of our most closely held values. This is why we're proud to honor local heroes in celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Lets meet one of our honorees. DENNIS-MICHAEL BROUSSARD: My name is Dennis-Michael Broussard and I produce events with my company called Silk Road Productions. The kind of events my company does are a lot of community events. We created the Asian Cultural Festival, and we created the Asian Music Festival. One of the things that we focus on with our events is just a sense of community empowerment. We work a lot with the youth and we train them in ways that enhance our own events and at the same time they can take the skills that they've learned from working with us into a future career for themselves. I love what I do because of the difference that I feel I am making in the community, and I want to continue doing what I can to help empower the API community in San Diego.
