Bamboo Ceiling

A Portrait Project celebrating Boston’s Asian-American entrepreneurs and community leaders

In Breaking the Bamboo Ceiling: Career Strategies for Asians, Jane Hyun coins the term “bamboo ceiling”, describing career challenges faced by many Asian-Americans

I’m a born and raised Bostonian and a first generation Chinese-American. Through my photography project, I hope to spotlight some of Boston’s talented and brilliant Asian-American entrepreneurs and community leaders

It is important to me that this portrait is not a boring headshot of a person with a cheesy grin.

I want this photography project is to show personality, soul, interaction, and most importantly impact.

Whether you are nominating yourself or another, I’d like to hear about how your person is making an impact in the community so that I can create a series of photographs showcasing how amazing they are.
