When you were 10 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Artist or professional pianist
A social cause you care deeply about and why?
BIPOC representation because it matters. When people like me are in positions of power, whether that be as the lead in a movie, an elected official, or a top executive for an organization, I feel more confident that we have a voice and there is real action into making change for a more inclusive society.
If you could earn a living doing anything else, what would it be?
Food blogger or whatever job that would give me the opportunity to try different foods all the time while being paid
You can invite 3 people from either present day or history to break bread with, who would it be and why?
Rachel Lindsay. As the first Black lead of The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise, she has always stayed confidently to who she is and I’ve admired how outspoken she has been about topics that matter. And her book and podcast are amazing! Truly inspired by her.
My grandpa on my dad’s side who passed away before I got to really know him. I would love to learn more about his life story of emigrating from China and making a new life in North America.
Awkwafina because I just want to get the intel on Shang-Chi 2
In 5 words, describe yourself? (must use all 5….no more…no less)
