She never ceases to amaze me.

Sanyee Yuan - a 20 something writer, actor, host, and Harvard graduate - is always chasing the next big opportunity by connecting with people who inspire her creative thought that would turn into a story or a script!

I first interviewed Sanyee in 2012 when she spoke movingly about being raised by a single mom with two jobs, two kids - her and her older sister. Both girls love television and movies.

Since moving to L.A., Sanyee has written numerous blogs about her adventure in Hollywood by focusing on how she overcomes fear and setbacks.

In this episode - the last of Season 4 - Sanyee let us in her latest projects and what keeps her thriving.

Check this out - “This Asian American Life: Cutting My Own Path in Hollywood.”

What drives you crazy? 

How about being called just that - crazy.

If you are struggling with a mental disorder, you might lash out or turn inward. And when you do, that word “crazy” could feel like a weapon that cuts through your skin. 

In this episode “This Asian American Life: Don’t Call Me Crazy” - New York based writer/editor/illustrator Hannah Bae reads a chapter she’s contributed to a new book “Don’t Call Me Crazy”  that depicts her personal struggle dealing with her mother. 

Her experience is one of thirty three dynamic and intimate voices in this fascinating book about mental health and a guide with helpful resources.
