Give us a little insight about your journey that got you where you are today.

Growing up in Canada, I never saw anyone on TV that looked like me and I always felt ashamed that I was Asian. It has been my mission to elevate the voices of Asian women and dismantle the stereotypes we face. I want our current and future generations to have a strong Asian female role model to look upto. This is why I love to elevate Asian women through media and coaching.

Can you tell us about some success stories you've had with your business/product or anything of which you are extremely proud?

My podcast has won awards and gained over 1 million downloads. I have co-authored 2 bestselling books and have been featured on big TV networks worldwide. I have also been able to help Asian women see their worth through my work.
