For me, representation means being proud of my identity and where I come from. Knowing your background is essential to keeping cultural traditions alive, as nowadays we live in a world where modernization equals Westernization. In this series, I shot three girls of Asian ethnicity. Being Asian myself, I felt like it was extremely important to speak to the my community’s diversity. Many people think of the word “Asian” and automatically think of a certain look and a few certain countries, but in reality Asia is a mixing pot of similar yet completely different customs.
