S5 Ep 17 - Growing Up Asian *SPECIAL EPISODE*


What was your experience growing up as an Asian in the USA or as an Asian-American? WATCH THE FULL YOUTUBE EPISODE HERE: 

In today's special episode, join me with my fellow friends/colleagues as we touch on what it was/is like to grow up in an Asian household and the things we learned from those experiences.

While the content will resonate more with those in the Asian community, this episode is the best way for anyone to learn about Asian cultures.

Tune in and hear some commonly asked questions we have gotten on many occasions and our response to some of the most common Asian stereotypes and misconceptions.

And in line with mental health awareness month, we also want to break the stigma around the Asian population and mental health. Let us continue nurturing each other's mental health by fostering respect, understanding, and compassion.
