Crazy Rich Asian

It took me many years to embrace my Chinese heritage because it was that association: “Crazy Rich Asians” I stood against so much. I knew I could have anything growing up but my parents have firmly taught me, “don’t expect me to give you anything on a silver platter, you must work hard to earn it”. These wise words have played a huge relevance in my life to get to where I am today. I still got a lot to learn and do but today, I’m proud to be an Australian Born Chinese and I thank Maria Grazia Chiuri, the Creative Director of DIOR for celebrating and creating a voice for women like me to embrace my heritage and culture.
