The Issue:

To every Asian American aspiring to be different from the mold, different from expectation: How much of a difference would it make in your self-confidence if you were able to CONSTANTLY see people who looked like you having success at the highest levels in that field? Throughout the generations, not seeing athletes who look like us in the media and not being able to have our struggles seen as valid, convinces so many of us at an early age that it just isn’t possible to succeed in sports. The perception of the Asian American athlete is one that is trifled with inferiority and inadequacy. But through our research and reporting thus far, we’ve realized is that there are actually SO many cases of success in our community. We just often never get to hear their stories because mainstream media does not see an importance in telling them.

The Solution:

We have developed deep relationships through the Asian American sporting community across the nation to help discover hidden talent. We will have videographers and reporters across the countries with the intention of accomplishing three goals: Provide these often underrecruited Asian Americans the platforms they need so that they can get the exposure they deserve Offer a space where the community can support their own and come together so they do not have to be on their athletic journies alone Show society what it truly means to be an ‘Asian American athlete’
