Southern Fried Asian

Sep 20, 2017

This week on Southern Fried Asian, Keith talks to writer, creator, diversity advocate -- and Ms. ADCOLOR at the recently held 2017 ADCOLOR Awards -- Jezzika Chung.

Keith and Jezz talk about spending her formative years in the ATL (4:00) and the role religion played growing up in a conservative Christian Korean household (17:00). Later, she discusses how moving to Texas helped her find a broader Asian community (22:30), what sparked her passion for diversity in college (27:00), and how that passion has translated into her advertising career (27:00). Then, Jezz explains why so many Asian immigrants from her community -- including her mother -- supported Donald Trump for President(39:00). Finally, Jezzika reminisces about her favorite comfort food and why it might not be gross to dip sausage and cheese biscuits into a bowl of kimchi-jjigae (46:00).
