    Episode 8: Silent Struggles of the Model Minority with Carrie Zhang, Founder of Asian Mental Health Project

    Episode 8: Silent Struggles of the Model Minority with Carrie Zhang, Founder of Asian Mental Health Project

    With cultural stigmas, outdated stereotypes, and the model minority myth, Asian Americans are often encouraged to fight their mental health issues in silence. Combined with a lack of culturally appropriate resources in a predominately white mental health workforce, finding support can seem especially inaccessible. Carrie Zhang, founder of the Asian Mental Health Project, experienced this firsthand as an Asian American raised by immigrant parents in California. We chat with Carrie in this episode to explore the unique struggles of being Asian American, her personal mental health journey, and her initiatives in the mental health community.

    The Asian Mental Health Project is an initiative that began in 2019, that builds community events and multimedia resources to make mental health more accessible for Pan-Asian communities.

    Episode 7: Kicking Ass as An Introvert with Jill Chang, International Best-Selling Author of Quiet is a Superpower

    Episode 7: Kicking Ass as An Introvert with Jill Chang, International Best-Selling Author of Quiet is a Superpower

    Society was built for those who fit the mold of normalcy and for those who don’t fit in, life becomes an onslaught of self-doubt. Jill Chang is quiet, introverted, and not someone most would consider the face of charismatic leadership. We sat down with Jill as she chatted about her authentic stories as one of the only young, female, and minority sports agents for Major League Baseball, how she learned to thrive as an introvert in an extroverted world, and her mental health journey with new acclaimed fame as an author.

    Curious about Jill?

    Jill doesn’t follow a traditional script. At the age of twenty-six she successfully signed five major league contracts for her clients within eighteen months as a professional sports agent. During her time at the US state government, she was in charge of procuring and trading projects between the US and Asia. Currently, she is devoted to international philanthropy. Jill is a Fellow of Harvard SEED for Social Innovation and was featured in Girls in Tech Taiwan 40 Under 40 in 2018. The traditional Chinese version of her book Quiet Is a Superpower was a #1 bestseller and stayed among the Top 10 bestsellers in Taiwan for 20 weeks.

    Episode 5: Good Old Anxiety and the Bad Butterflies

    Episode 5: Good Old Anxiety and the Bad Butterflies

    We’re all familiar with the occasional anxious feelings right before moving to a new city or right after we’ve failed an exam. You get sweaty palms, stinky armpits, racing heart, and swarming butterflies - not the good kind. But, anxiety with a capital “a” doesn’t just go away yet plants its root deep into our minds turning seemingly insignificant moments into worrisome thoughts that consume our being. For those of us who experience Anxiety, it’s a constant uphill battle and you’re not alone. Listen in as we dissect the misconceptions surrounding Anxiety and chat about our own experiences.

It's about being unabashedly authentic in our thoughts, emotions, and desires. Listen in to hear us share our nuggets of wisdom and how to overcome the fear of vulnerability.

Much Needed Podcast

Love it! Growing up in an Asian household, I also faced challenges of not being able to talk my feelings out, let alone mental health. This podcast is about conversations I never got to have with my family, but desperately needed to hear

E_Dawg_ ,

Funny and Insightful

I love how the podcast is bringing more awareness to mental health issues through candid conversations and personal anecdotes. The stories they share are vulnerable yet humorous, which made it easier for me to connect and relate to them - even as someone who doesn’t share the same struggles as they do.

Will definitely be listening more of the episodes!
