CHOPSO interviews Asian American Voice producer and host B.J. Kang. The podcast is now streaming on CHOPSO.
C: Why did you start the Asian American Voice?
I started the Asian American voice because I noticed that many Asian-Americans were unhappy in their job and career paths. Many Asian-Americans have similar societal and parental pressures of having to fit a stereotypical model of what educational and career success is. By interviewing Asian-Americans that have gone the non-traditional career path and have followed their passions, my hope is to inspire other Asian-Americans stuck in a career they dislike to hear inspiring stories of others that have followed their heart and intuition.

C: What’s the best piece of advice you learned on the podcast?
My best piece of advice I learned on the podcast is that we as humans are wired very similarly. We have struggles, fears, blocks in following our dreams and passions. The people that create things in the world are the ones that feel the fear, resistance but do it anyway.
