Excuse the braggy title, but our Marie Claire profile in “The New Change Agents” is now up online. And apparently on the front page of MarieClaire.com too.
Look ma, it’s us!
Of course, this would not have happened without all of your support, so thank you, again, for sharing yourself with this community. We mean this more than we can express.
Read the entire profile here.
Thank you everyone for your words of encouragement. Here are some behind-the-scenes photos from our shoot in NYC with Marie Claire! There are some taken by Lisa, and some taken by Lynn.
You can read more about the food/travel part over at The Actor’s Diet.
Lynn and I are stoked to share with you all that WE ARE IN THE APRIL 2013 ISSUE OF MARIE CLAIRE!
Yes, that Marie Claire.
It’s out, finally. We hated keeping secrets from you, especially during that mysterious trip to New York in January where Lynn and I met up for the MC photoshoot.
But, no more secrets.
We are now all yours… to pick up at your nearest newsstand!
At the beginning of the year, we were approached by Helen Coster about profiling us for “The New Change Agents” story for MC. We were pleasantly surprised, honored, and beyond thrilled.
We emailed and texted each other back and forth in excitement, reminding each other that this was a goal of ours. People often ask us what we hope to accomplish with this site, and we’ve always said that we wanted to get Asian American body image issues and eating disorders out into the open, onto mainstream media outlets, and we want to make sure that non-Asian Americans (and Asian Americans themselves) are learning about these issues.
So at two years old, we can proudly tell you that we hit a milestone, and we hope that you’re proud of us too!
We’ll post the online article as soon as it’s available.
Thank you Helen Coster and MC for giving us a platform to share the work that we do. This type of coverage in the female community is so important. We want to look good, but more importantly, we want to do (and are fully capable of doing) good.

P.S. There is a minor mistake in the write up. Let us know if you find it. ;)
Mume Yoshiwara’s thoughts about Asian beauty was published in Marie Claire back in May.
There are 4.1 billion Asians in the world, or almost 60 percent of the entire human race. Some 17.3 million of them live in the United States. Asian cultures are some of the oldest on the planet. So why, given so much representation and centuries to, you know, expand our tastes, is the definition of Asian female beauty still this narrow?
Read the full article here. Mume does a great job at explaining all of the different layers of why Asian women are held to such “strict” standards of beauty, still.
