Catching Up With Michelle Li

December 13, 2023

Michelle Li famously created the Very Asian Foundation after a viewer in St. Louis sent her a racist email telling her to “keep her Korean to herself” and of being “very Asian” after she mentioned on-air that she enjoyed eating traditional Korean dumpling soup as part of a New Year’s tradition.

Here, she discusses her love of Seattle, her surprise that her experience went viral, and how the experience increasingly shapes her life.
