Where does a Diaspora Asian consider home? Is it where they were born and raised? Is it where they had most of their family in? Is it where you/your family have property? Is it where they are most connected to? Do they actually have one definite answer?

In today’s episode, I talked to Lyra Tan, a Filipino-Chinese Hongkonger that works in the American movie industry. She is also an avid cosplayer with her own Instagram account showing off all her cosplays that she has done. Make sure to check it out!

We talked about the follow topics:


Her background and her family’s background

Her language abilities as a Diaspora Asian

Her experience feeling in-between as a Diaspora Asian

Her experience going to an international school in Hong Kong and her experience going to university in America as an international student

Where she considers home

Asian representation in media

Her cosplay

Her favourite Filipino foods
