So when you finally see someone who looks like you on-screen, it can be very empowering.

Maybe Dev Shah's struggle to have people focus on him and not his skin color on Master of None is something you relate to.

Netflix

Or maybe you strongly identify with Mulan and her courage to break traditional stereotypes.

Or perhaps when you saw the Huangs from Fresh Off The Boat, you shouted, "That's my family!"

ABC
