Honest Conversations with Mimi Jung : Life, Discrimination, and Transformation (pt 1of 3)
Apr 28, 2021 Season 1 Episode 14
Amy Vallejo

Welcome to our 3 part series with Mimi Jung.  This is an honest conversation about life on screen, life as an Asian American woman, life transformations, life as a working mom, life as someone who found her voice to speak out and stand against discrimination-even within her own culture.   I hope you will carve out time to listen to all 3 episodes, starting with this one getting to know the creative woman behind the news desk you see every morning.

Mimi Jung is the award winning journalist & news anchor you've seen on your screens every morning on King 5 for the last 21 years.   Her job, as she shares, is to tell stories-of the community, the people, the businesses, the world. .  You'll find her doing so as the MC for Gala events, involvement in local charity organizations, interviewing a grieving mother, highlighting the achievements of a local business all to share with you the collective struggle, emotion, celebration, and community connection we all feel when watching her on a broadcasting screen.

Today we listen in as she explains life behind the screen.   When she leaves the studio, she puts on her yoga pants just like the rest of us and does school pick up, yard work,  endless errands, and even manages to fit in time for her favorite creative outlets-which she emphasizes is a much needed "massage for her brain" break from a day of intense reporting.    She talks about her local celebrity, what it's like to report human struggle and pain, the lessons she's learned while getting older, and the importance of cultivating an authentic, honest relationship with her co-anchor (and you, the audience).

We dip our toes into the bigger conversation, her story and feelings surrounding Asian American  discrimination.   Mimi shares her own experiences with Asian hate crimes, inequity, assimilation into a culture,  discrimination, the awakening and awareness that is stirring within communities, and her own brave efforts for changing to script and re-writing the future for herself, her kids and her culture.

Hear the full story in Episode 15 & 16 (part 2 of 3 and 3 of 3) coming soon.
