Michelle Yang, MBA, is a mental health advocate who speaks and writes about the intersection of Asian American identity, feminism, and mental health. Tired of the stigma, she is empowered to humanize and normalize mental illnesses as another part of the human condition. Born ethnic Chinese in South Korea, Michelle immigrated to the US as a child. A proud “takeout kid,” who grew up working in her family’s Chinese restaurant, her articles have been featured in InStyle, Reader’s Digest, HuffPost, Shondaland, National Alliance on Mental Illness, and more. Her memoir, How a Fat Asian with Bipolar Found Love, is forthcoming.
