I just want to be clear that I am not a stereotypical asian driver. Though I may live in K-town where that stereotype exists abundantly (they just stop go stop go and never use their blinkers!), I’d like to consider myself an adequate driver. Now, with that said, I did play that stereotype (who better to really when I can just walk outside my door and learn immediately) in a video I did with the ever fashionable Jeannie Mai. Her brother, my good friend Daniel Mai, directed it, shot it and included me. Couldn’t be more grateful to be a part of it. Enjoy!
In the midst of surviving by the skin of my teeth (making rent) in this hard ass no effing point but tons of consequences thing (life), I managed to do a podcast with my good friend Krista Turner. Through her, we did a podcast (broken up into 2 episodes below) for Van Nguyen, host and leader of AZN Confidence — a dating podcast for Asian Americans about building confidence, networks and relationship.
Disclaimer: By no means, do I call myself an expert about asian confidence. Ironically, I have suffered from the lack confidence. But like a phoenix, I will (if not yet) rise from the ashes and fly! If you’ve read any of my blog, you’ve noticed that I’ve improved upon the confidence factor, right? Right? Anyone? If anything all I can really shed light on is based on my own experiences and observations. Also, Krista is pretty articulate on the podcast and she compensates for my loopiness on the audio. Enjoy!
