Tell Us About The First Time You Felt Represented As An Asian-American On Television Or In Film

"Who is that girl I see, staring straight back at me?"

Growing up as an Asian-American and being misrepresented or left out of the media can be tough.

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.

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!"

Whatever the case, we want to hear your stories about the first time you felt represented as an Asian-American on television or in a movie.
