Oh, expectations. We can just never get tired of talking about them. That’s why we’ve decided to dedicate a whole episode on expectations! Got to love them. And as Ceci Kim, an awesome fellow classmate from my Asian American studies course has intended, our conversation will focus on expectations put upon us in contexts that are broader than just your average work or school environment. How have expectations from our family and society shaped us growing up? How have we reacted to them in the past? How have they informed us to make decisions in our life (from big to small)? Tune in for the answers!

Ceci is a second generation Korean American currently in grad school in New York. She spends most of her time hanging out with her dog, watching Korean dramas, and searching for the perfect bowl of noodles.

As Asian women, we have the misfortune to feel pressures to conform to society’s westernized beauty standards based on our gender and race. From the shade of our skin to the size of our eyes, we are scrutinized for having what we have instead of being told that we are beautiful and that we are enough. In this episode, I will be holding my largest group interview with my fellow Southeast Asian gals, Gift Inthaly, Danielle DeGuzman, and last but not least, Rosenna Moungyiv on their personal insights on what really matters (hint: #bodylove).

Gift Inthaly is a second generation Thai-Laotian American who is currently pursuing a bachelor of science in nursing. After graduating college and becoming a nurse, she hopes to be able to someday travel all over the the world.

Second generation and Filipino American, Danielle DeGuzman is currently in college pursuing a bachelor's degree in nursing. She hopes to experience all the world that it has to offer, so she can better understand herself and others.

Rosenna Moungyiv is a second generation Cambodian American who is currently studying nursing and enjoying her newfound passion in her work taking care of patients at a local nursing home.

Thank you for tuning in to listen to SEASON 2 of Project Voice! Let's kick off the new season with a topic that many of us constantly have to grapple with regardless of how old we are: interacting with our parents.

I wouldn't say that all Asian parents are strict and conservative by nature, but I would like to open the floor to discuss the reasons why some of them are that way to their children. I think that it's more important to focus on how different our beliefs and values are to our parents as it is quite a unique experience growing up as an Asian in the U.S. in which you experience cultural clashes within your home everyday. In this episode, my friend Swati and I will share stories on how we cope with our differences and disagreements with our parents.

Swati Sharma is a neuroscience research assistant at a pharmaceutical company who loves comedy and singing, and is passionate about learning new things and making the world a better place. I'm so excited to have her as my first guest of the season on Project Voice!
