Jeff Zhao

Jeff Zhao works in consulting by trade (which means when he has his work pants on), but by night, you will find him obsessing over one of several things - anything and everything food related (his alter ego is señor sourdough), training muay thai, and probably watching a super corny Shounen anime. He Co-Founded As I Am to build a platform that amplified Asian voices, as he believes they have been long muted in mainstream western discourse.

Isabella Le

Isabella Le is a law graduate who travels when she can. At one point she studied in Paris, which she will not stop talking about. Isabella is obsessed with good food, Nina Simone, yoga and her two dogs, Lola and Koda. She Co-Founded As I Am because she wanted to explore what it means to be Asian in the West - an experience that is both unique and shared.

Phi Hong Lu

Phi Hong Lu (known as Phiphi) is a Vietnamese Translator and Interpreter.

Our simplified Mandarin translation was provided by Jee Ern Ng.
