Tina Tchen and the United #StateofWomen
Tina on how being a Mash-Up makes you resilient.
Growing up different builds resilience. I was a litigator at a big law firm where it was unusual to have senior women who were litigators and it was even more unusual to have an Asian woman being a litigator. I used to have experiences in court when court reporters, even sometimes jurors, would say, “You speak English so well!” Yeah. Okay. It’s the only language I speak.
But having grown up with that [sort of comment] my entire life, it’s not something that I dwelt on. It didn’t bother me or undermine my self-confidence. It’s something that just rolls off your back.
