I wanted to share this video from Buzzfeed because I can definitely relate. Even though all women can relate to this video, this one really hits harder, especially as an Asian woman.
I was never petite nor skinny, even though I was told at a younger age that’s what an Asian woman should look like. I was told that I was chubby and shouldn’t eat too much, however at the same time, I should eat all my food so it’s not a waste.
I have broad shoulders, I’m dark and I have muscular legs. There’s nothing I can do about that. I don’t fit the “stereotypical Asian woman physique,” whatever that means.
And to this day, I accept that!
