About Kpop for Peace
Our Mission is to spread positivity and to raise awareness about issues affecting the world, with a primary focus on South Korea and the United States. K-Pop For Peace, Inc is an organization created by K-Pop stans who wanted to be the additional change needed for those facing oppression across the globe. Lead by the idea that we can truly be the change that we wish to see in the world and to continue the positive impact that our idols have started, we research issues that are affecting various populations and design programs or events that are geared towards addressing those said issues.
Who We Are
Myeisha Selby was introduced to K-Pop in 2012, but her official journey started in 2018 when she discovered BTS. Myeisha saw the beauty of K-Pop but also the underlying issues. In November 2019, during a time where she relied heavily on K-Pop to keep her uplifted, situations happened in the K-Pop community that painted the industry in a negative perspective. Blinded by their dislike for K-Pop, the industry was portrayed as completely toxic, filled with harsh words and endless doxxing that led to fandom wars. Despite the circumstances, Myeisha recognized, like many others, that the ugly stereotype hid the beauty of the K-Pop such as the love and support, the creative beauty, and the power of helping those in need around the world. Myeisha wanted to be the change that was needed, to show those inside and outside the K-Pop world what a powerful and positive effect the industry had, and to bring peace to those affected by various situations. Myeisha started with this dream and it was crafted into what you see today: K-Pop For Peace. Myeisha strives hard to ensure the organization reflects what it truly means: to be the platform that brings positivity awareness during times of need. The platform refuses to remain silent on issues affecting various communities. K-Pop For Peace promotes openly and honestly because the team recognizes that their platform is needed in our society and to remain silent on issues affecting our people, would be the biggest betrayal.
In her spare time, Myeisha likes to paint, read, and listen to K-Pop. While pursuing her Master’s degree and volunteering with local organizations, Myeisha is studying Korean in hopes to apply for teaching programs in South Korea in the future.
"Hello everyone! My name is Jalia, and I am 22 years old. I am a published poet and love anything music. I love to sing and hope to become a singer one day, but for now, I am currently a ghost tour guide. My love for music and bringing people together brought me to K-Pop for Peace. I have been a K-Pop fan for nearly 9 years, and have always been a multi-fan. I wanted to help share the K-pop experience that helped me get through tough times and celebrate in the good ones. "
"Hey, lovelies! I am Gemini. I am 28 and a recent Computer Science graduate. I have a 6-year-old son named Brantley and he is a multi k-pop fan, just like me! I joined the K-pop for Peace admin team because the message of the organization resonated deeply with me. Being able to spread awareness about important issues going on in the world and positivity through a mutual love for music within an organization of like-minded women, sounded like a dream come true. I hope to continue to help make this organization thrive while also bringing joy to our followers."
"My name is Mondeja, and I am 16 years old. I love to dance and listen to music. The reason I joined the admin team for K-Pop for Peace is to spread peace around the world, for North and South Korea, and America as well. I joined so that not only my voice would be heard, but my unnies also, and create a positive community where K-pop stans and non-stans can believe in themselves, be heard, and share the positivity around the world.
