Sharing life lessons from my Asian, refugee, single mom and how she's influenced me as a person & my outlook on life.
I've been in love with the movies, Crazy Rich Asians & To All the Boys I've Loved Before for many reasons. Not only are they great, captivating stories, this means a lot to me as an Asian American, especially one in entertainment & media. Growing up Asian American, I rarely saw anyone who looked like me on TV or in movies. Representation in mainstream media and dominant culture matters. This week, I truly felt it for real.
