Guest: Joanne Van (@jovananne)
Today I talked to Joanne Van, a digital marketer with an ethnic Chinese Vietnamese-American background that was born and raised in America. Her parents were born and raised in Vietnam (Diaspora Asians in their own right) that identifies more with being Chinese than Vietnamese. The interesting part of this would be that both Joanne and her parents actually never step foot in China. We went into the reasons why Joanne’s parents felt like this and how that contributed to Joanne’s own journey with her identity and cultural understanding of her own Chinese-Vietnamese culture mixed in with her Asian American identity. Joanne is also one that is very into Asian culture/media and we go into why that is and what she gets out of that. We also talked about her passion for creativity and business that led her to her career in digital and social media marketing. We talked about how her parents took that as it is not your normal career path. Last, we also talked about KPOP as Joanne is part of a company that is heavily involved in the KPOP music industry/community. She recommended a few KPOP acts to check out as well.
