I believe that media affects life as much as life affects media. If there is a lack of honest, multi-dimensional Asian and Asian American characters in our plays, musicals, films, TV, books, etc. and a continued stream of outdated stereotypes parading our consciousness, prejudices and assumptions will continue to harm our world.
I aim to portray complex characters and create discussion about the racial issues present in our history and today's society. I think the most invaluable thing in the world is telling stories and having the underrepresented, silenced, and isolated heard in an effort to give us a sense of belonging and home.
