Episode 10: Asian + Black Solidarity Through the Love of K-Dramas || Honoring Black History Month

As I see it, through our love of #kdramas (and #kpop), there’s a powerful intersectionality between Asian and Black culture. 😎 Now more than ever we need to stand in solidarity! This episode is just a snippet showing Asian and Black cultural relatability to honor Black History Month.

I highlight three fabulous black women I very much admire! 🥰 Asian and Black solidarity should be displayed always. 🙌. As a solution-focused therapist, I am calling you forward in focusing on the similarities of our experiences, not the differences. I’m calling you forward in celebrating our commonalities because there are many. I’m calling you forward in discovering your impact on how you can stand in solidarity today. 👊

Episode 9: Mr. Sunshine + Reply 1988 + Start-Up || Say What You Mean and Mean What You Say

It would be so much easier if we could see what went on “behind the scenes” in our families like we do in K-Dramas. This would be especially helpful for kids (young and older) to see what their parents are experiencing behind their backs. Do they really mean the harsh things they tell us? If only, we could see what they really mean to say. Parents traditionally feel the need to “show face” in front of their kids by appearing stoic and silent because they don’t want to express what they’re feeling. It”s time to unlearn this type of behavior for the sake of anxiety in the family.
