About this submission

As an Asian woman, I never lived up to the Asian beauty standard. I was too tan, too short, and too fat. I was shocked so many Asian American girls strive to fit this standard when they were born in the US. I documented 8 Asian girls who did not fit the Asian stereotype to share their stories and show their beauty. The production was shot and edited in a week due to the budget. It was a collaboration with powerful Asian women with hopes to produce a bigger budget film reaching a wider audience of Asian women.
