Reflection: The Face Behind Mulan

By: Michaela Zee


“I think one of the reasons why I got into acting is to have a positive impact on speaking about our personal journeys, or making connections. It’s wonderful when you can make that kind-of lifelong connection with someone.”


Michaela Zee interviews her mother Ming-Na Wen. The piece explores Ming-Na’s experiences when voicing Disney’s Mulan in the ‘90s, and how this character of Asian descent has affected both her and countless others around the world when it comes to embracing one’s identity.
