@katrinalaw: What do you celebrate today? Day 23 of 365. Today I celebrate my fellow half Asians of Hollywood! Too often people (& studio execs) see us and have no idea “what we are,” but our Asian parents still raised us respecting the culture and speaking the language. We are a rare breed and I am so happy to share stories & laughter with beauties like Chloe who have walked the same path and experienced the same struggles. There’s a beauty in being who you are and living that truth loudly and proudly. @chloebennet #appreciate #celebrate (x)
