Happy new year! 🥳 We’re kicking off the new year with a new series, “FOB Facts”! In our first episode of “FOB Facts”, we’re tackling how to survive as a token Asian. Whether you’re the only Asian in your friend group, workplace, or at school, it can be isolating and you may feel disconnected from everyone around you. With this episode, we share our experiences and give some advice on how to navigate the situation and foster a better connection with your culture. 💛RESOURCES💛 https://www.asianmhc.org/ http://samhaa.org/ (South Asian Mental Health Alliance) https://hongfook.ca/association/ https://www.justshapesandsounds.com/ https://www.nqapia.org/ (National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance) 💛HELPLINES💛 http://www.suicide.org/international-suicide-hotlines.html https://successbc.ca/counselling-crisis-support/ https://www.thecolourproject.ca/ http://www.chimoservices.com/ 🥠ABOUT FOB🥠 Song: Crying Over You https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiYs5z4xdBU Connect with us!

Living With Asian Parents

2022-12-2101:04:57

Happy Holidays to our Fob Family 💛🫶 The holidays can be a tough time for many. With the heavy emphasis on spending time with family, if you don’t have a family to spend the holidays with, it is a rather isolating time of year. In our last episode of the year, we sit down and talk about moving out and how it’s frowned upon by Asian parents.
