My Story

Growing up in Toronto, Canada, in the 1990s, it was hard to embrace my own culture. All I saw on TV was blond hair and blue eyes, and I wanted to change my name to Heather to sound more “Western.” It wasn’t until my 20s that I started embracing being Asian, and I decided to change my hair color back from blond to my original hair color.

In 2015, I was looking for resources that catered to Asian women’s confidence because I was dealing with my self-confidence issues. I searched the internet, and sadly, I couldn’t find any. Some part of me thought felt something was wrong with me because I was the only one feeling this way, but our culture constantly tells us never to share our feelings.

So on September 1, 2015, I launched my podcast, The Tao of Self-Confidence, where I interviewed over 700 Asian Women on self-confidence. By interviewing so many Asian women from around the world with different backgrounds and industries, I realized I was not alone in dealing with self-confidence issues, and it was a breath of fresh air knowing I could overcome my problems just by listening to the stories of other Asian women who have similar journeys. Not only has the podcast served as a support system for Asian women, but it also created a stronger representation of Asian women.
