i believe that one thing that really differentiates one culture from another is language. just from my physical appearance, i will always be asian. since it is impossible to deny this (unless i get plastic surgery) i choose to embrace it. especially the language. i’m not just asian, i’m vietnamese.
as an actor, i utilize myself in my work. my manager wanted me to showcase my language capabilities, thus spawned thi time: conversations with my mom part 1-4. i’m showcasing this now because in three days, i’m going to viet nam, the mother fucking motherland! whoooo! with my mother as well! hahaha and dad too.
it’s not permanent, just a little vacay. i’m looking at it as more of a retreat, a place for me to reflect, get in touch with my roots, my background and myself. i’m going native betchessss!!!
