Artist Sean “Hula” Yoro (@the_hula) first made waves in the art world by combining his loves of surfing and painting. 👋 In his first-ever mural series, he paddled out to paint along ocean walls. “There is rarely one process I use, but I enjoy the new challenges every site brings,” says Sean.
“Since the start of my career, I have always drawn my inspiration back to my Hawaiian upbringing in the unique melting pot of island culture,” says the artist from Kahalu’u, Hawaii. “One value that has always stuck with me no matter where I have moved to is the term we call ‘kuleana.’ It is the responsibility we are taught as kids to know your role and responsibility in society for the better of your community.”
This post is in celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, celebrated every May in the United States. #APAheritagemonth

For floral stylist Ruby Barber (@ruby_marylennox), her interest blossomed at a local flower market. 💐 “In the beginning, my friend and I were just buying flowers for ourselves,” says Ruby, who was living in Sydney, Australia. “We shared a birthday and we styled the flowers for our party.”
Ruby moved to Berlin, and in 2012 she started her studio Mary Lennox, named after the main character in Frances Hodgson Burnett’s novel “The Secret Garden.”
Today on our story, we visit Mary Lennox to see Ruby’s floral fantasies.

Hello, world. Today’s #WeeklyFluff is the mom and daughter team Sheba and Ripley (@theconeycats), Oriental longhairs from Brooklyn, New York, who love socializing. “These ladies are always the life of the party when I have people over,” says their human Nicole Scarano. “Ripley is the official apartment greeter. If anyone comes to the door she stands on top of a table and loudly yells at them until they pay her proper attention.”

“I wasn’t sure what was going on with my health, so I put out a post that said, ‘I’m under construction,’” explains actress Sasha Pieterse (@sashapieterse), who stars in the TV show “Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists” (@prettylittleliars).
“I’m so glad I did because it was the first #RealConvo that I had on Instagram, and it was basically saying that nobody’s perfect, everybody goes through things in life. I think the more that we talk about things the less it will feel taboo.”
May is Mental Health Awareness Month in the United States. Head to @afspnational now to see more #RealConvo stories and learn more. ❤️

For #NationalPoetryMonth, 26-year-old poet Melissa Lozada-Oliva (@ellomelissa) is sharing with us her forthcoming poem, “If you cast me in a movie, cast me as.” Inspired by the legacy of singer-songwriter Selena Quintanilla, the poem is Melissa’s way of expressing why representation matters. 🤘🏽 “What we’re looking for on a screen or in a book is ourselves. When we don’t see that, it’s damaging,” says Melissa. “This makes it impossible to cast the perfect Latina in a role, because there is no Latina who will represent us all. We are everything we carry and everything we’ve been trying to forget.”
Today on our story and IGTV channel, Melissa recites part of her poem and is joined by Yesika Salgado (@yesikastarr), Melania-Luisa Marte (@sheismela) and Kim Guerra (@brownbadassbonita), who will also be participating in the #WeAllGrow Summit (@weallgrowlatina) next month.
