Ep. 4: Hong Kong Calling, with Joyce Chu

Joyce Chu talks with me about growing up in Hong Kong, then moving to the U.S. as an exchange student. We discuss tea restaurants, Hong Kong-style macaroni breakfasts, karaoke, C-Pop, Korean beauty products and the difference between Mandarin and Cantonese. Joyce also tells me about watching "She's the Man" and "Mean Girls" to learn English, her Chinese name and how she started liking avocados. Also, you know that feeling where you walk into someone's messy dorm, and you're like, "Oh no"? Joyce can relate because that was my room freshman year. But don't worry — she powered through and found a place to sit. And the rest, as they say, is HERstory.
