I wanted to officially announce my latest project on my blog — for the past few months, I’ve been working tirelessly on… my new YouTube web series Sweet & Power!
Sweet & Power is a comedy-drama show about four Asian American women in their 20s who are best friends. The first season flashes back to their childhood stories and college hilarities, and also follows how they currently navigate the highs and lows of careers, relationships, sexuality, and cultural identity.
I wrote this web series because I’d love to watch a show like this on Netflix. Successful blockbuster movies like Black Panther and Crazy Rich Asians have more people talking about how “representation matters”, so I created the representation that I want to see in media.
Below is a trailer of Episode 1 — the official release date is Sept. 17!
Please support and subscribe to our YouTube channel!
Another way you could support us is by donating to the Sweet & Power Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.
To be honest, each episode costs nearly $2,000 to produce (and Season 1 has 5 episodes). I’m currently paying for it out of pocket, so we’re trying to raise $10,000 in order to fully pay for the videographer and production costs.
We’re 8% there! Thank you to all the generous backers so far! If you want to see more female writers and diverse voices represented in media, please consider donating to the Sweet & Power Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.
Thank you for reading my blog, whether you’re a new subscriber or have followed for years. Of course I like “pretty things” like fashion and beauty, but my true passion has always been writing and telling stories, especially stories from perspectives we don’t often see yet in media.
I’ll still be blogging (in fact, I have lots more Portugal, Morocco, and London travel and outfit posts to come!), though I hope you’ll continue to support me through my new Asian American female web series Sweet & Power!
For more information, you can visit the Sweet & Power website and also follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
