About

We’re a team of Asian Canadians who are passionate about celebrating, advocating and elevating Asian representation in various fields.

We grew up not seeing people who looked like us on television, in movies and in magazines, and despite the current rise of Asian representation in media, we still think there is plenty of room for improvement when it comes to representing Asians in many different areas of life. Our mission is to tell the stories of successful Asians in their respective industries to inspire and motivate other Asians to strive for greatness.
