Born to Vietnamese parents, keshi adds to a growing collection of popular Asian-American artists; his name comes to mind alongside Rich Brian, Jhené Aiko and Olivia Rodrigo. Fans can stress the ethnicity of their favorite artists as part of why they enjoy their works, but keshi tries to distance himself from this branding on his identity. “I think that when you try to stress that you are an Asian-American artist, it’s almost like you’re trying to carve out a space for yourself that says, ‘Hey, this guy is an Asian artist so you should give him attention because of that when the real reason you should be giving someone attention is that their art is just good.,” Keshi said.

If students cannot attend their desired school, they can attend a different college first, then transfer later in their college career. For example, Georgia Technical Institute (Georgia Tech) accepted just below 40% and 20% of Georgian and non-Georgian applicants respectively in 2020. On the other hand, the college accepted 53% of Georgia resident transfers and 31% of non-Georgia residents. So an option exists where one could attend Kennesaw State University (KSU) at first, then transfer into Georgia Tech later on.
