12. Am I a Bad Asian?

By Tiana Nguyen & Thuy Nguyen

So, are all asians good at maths and studying to become doctors or engineers whilst being super timid & quiet with a love for anime? In this episode we deep dive into the stereotypes associated with being a good asian and deduce whether we're good or bad? From studying the Asian 5 to typical Asian career choices, and being a goody two-shoes who loves all things Asian to being frugal; we uncover the common pressures from society that has shaped our decisions and impacted our search for validation as Asian Australians. E P I S O D E O U T L I N E ------------------------------------------ •"Good Asian" stereotypes deep dive: •Studying/uni choices - Asian 5, Tutoring •Career choices - STEM fields, corporate world •Asians are quiet - timid, nerdy, goody two-shoes •Liking Asian things i.e. Anime, Manga, KPOP •Asians are cheap/frugal •Thuy & Tiana reflect on their own experiences and share whether they are "good" or "bad" Asians.
