The way we look, unfortunately, holds a great deal of power over how the world interacts with us, perceives us, and limits us. As a biracial Korean American who spent my entire life not fitting in anywhere - being constantly stared at, asked 'what am I,' and so on - I began to incorporate bolder, more colorful and eccentric designs into my looks.
There is something special about the radical demonstration of self in a world that encourages uniformity but desperately hungers for authenticity.
My ambition is to encourage others to push their boundaries in the comfort zones of their own daily lives - appearance, story, style - to truly, authentically, and unapologetically shine, as well as offer the guidance and insight from things that I've learned along the way.
