HELLO! How are you? 
Hope you had a great holiday weekend. Happy Valentine's Day and President's Day! 

First, I want to THANK YOU for signing up for my newsletter! 

In January, I finally LAUNCHED #AmyLieuPresents! Yay! Thank you for your patience and support. I worked really hard to make this happen, and I am so grateful that you are part of my journey. 

#AmyLieuPresents is a talk show that features the stories of Asian Americans and women. It aims to empower and profile these communities, while entertaining the audience with humor. While it is for everyone, the show seeks to give a voice to Asian Americans and women, both of which are underrepresented in mainstream media. Often times, stories in mainstream media are told from a male gaze -- I want to tell stories from the woman's perspective, and from an Asian American one, which happens to be my background. Thank you for your support in my mission. It means the world to me!
