I grew up knowing what it’s like to break stereotypes. I couldn’t even count the number of people who have been surprised that my “accent” is so muted and how great my English is, how my parents are actually super white, and how I don’t actually have rice everyday (unless I’ve been eating Chipotle everyday). But what I’ve realized is that I’ve spent my life acknowledging how I’ve broken others’ stereotypes of me – how […]

It inspires, it’s trendy, and it’s a big hit- and speaking of this trend, this […]

Its messages could be interpreted in so many different ways: each person has the ability to apply it to their own life by their own application. That’s why it’s successful as an athletic brand, too. If you’ve been considering running, well then just do it. That’s all fine and dandy- getting up and off the couch is a fantastic […]
Every story has to start somewhere, right? Well, sadly mine starts in a very dark, (boring), and miserable place. I think my food issues started in the seventh grade when a bunch of gal pals had a gal fight and cut me out of the group for not taking sides- not that I’m blaming them (at all!), that incident caused me to turn to food to cope.
