This one really hit me hard. Coming from an Asian upbringing never allowed to give into my interests except studying and doing well in school for the future, I completely sympathise with Christina. I wanted to do so many things that were not family approved because it was not practical and hearing rejection from your family was the hardest for me. This episode was healing. Thank you for doing it.
