Example of Asian women being treated as bully target: Uber driver blamed my male friend for closing the door hard and instead he swore at me in Chinese “f you mom” (he and my friend are not Asian)

How do you deal with trying to live and establish a life of your own but also making sure to grateful and aware of the sacrifices your family has made to get you to where you are now?

Do you guys ever feel like you're 'too Asian' in the workplace but 'not Asian enough' when it comes to family/friends? My morals are rooted in Asian traditions, but can't speak my native language well

Joined Ascend a couple years ago and didnt find it valuable in the first year since the local chapter wasn't super active. Thinking about rejoining. What does everyone else think about Ascend?

Sorry if this offends anyone. Have any of you guys had to deal with “high school jocks” at your firm? These guys at my firm seem to have the same high school mentality and style of jokes.

Does anyone else get really bad Asian glow? Or am a total lightweight like me? Pretty sure I’m allergic to alcohol. I see Asians at events drinking crazy amounts with no issues. Am I alone? 😭

Nine months in and already feeling so unmotivated. Busy season was tough but nonbusy time is even worse.

Curious what your parents think about you working in Accounting? Know it's typical to grow up with Asian parents who always push you to get into the medical industry or engineering
