Show Notes

Asians who grew up in the West, or as a minority, love it when we see people who look like us in the media. What's not to celebrate, right? They're representing us on a big platform! BUT, what happens if those who are supposed to represent us, do not? Worse, what happens when the person who’s supposed to represent us stands up for a cause that goes against our values? How much value/weight should we put on movies, music, pop culture in general? Tune in for our takes on Disney's adaptation of Mulan. 

What's your story? Hit us up and tell us about it as we'd love to hear it!

S3E9. Losing Graciously: Is It Possible?

As much as we all want to be a winner all day every day, there are times where we just have to admit defeat (and plot for a comeback). We don't necessarily think losing is a bad thing though, as we can turn that sense of bitterness into a motivation to improve. Losing does stink, but is there such thing as losing graciously? And do we want to be one?    As always, if you have a burning question, find us here: Email: [email protected] IG: @frndsnextdoor Dan: @therealdanchen Mia: @msmiaaa ...
