Honest Conversations with Mimi Jung : Life, Discrimination, and Transformation (pt 2 of 3)
May 07, 2021 Season 1 Episode 15
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 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.    Mimi shares the barriers and difficulties of discrimination in her childhood.  How her perception of " we are color blind " or "we don't see color"  has changed, and how the example of other Asian Americans has empowered her own voice in sharing her story to further change.    

Hear the full story in Episode 14  (part 1 of 3) & 16 ( 3 of 3 coming soon) .
