This is a side of life the Burmese military junta might prefer you did not see: girls who appear to be 13 and 14 years old paraded in front of customers at a nightclub where a beauty contest thinly veils child prostitution. Tottering in stiletto heels and miniskirts, young teenage girls criss-crossed the dance-floor as part of a nightly "modelling" show at the Asia Entertainment City nightclub on a recent evening in Rangoon. Some girls stared at the floor while others tugged self-consciously on short hemlines, stretching the flimsy material a few centimetres longer as they catwalked awkwardly to the accompaniment of blasting hip-hop music. Watching these young entertainers of the "Cherry-Sexy Girls" model groups were a few male customers, and a far larger crowd of Burmese sex workers, mostly in their late teens and early 20s, who sat at low tables in the darkness of the club. Escorting several girls to a nearby table of young men, a waiter said the show was not so much modelling as marketing. Prostitution, particularly involving children, is a serious crime in military-ruled Burma, but girls taken from the club would have no problem with the authorities, the waiter assured the company, but did not explain why not. It would seem that prostitution is one of the few things the Burmese military, fresh from its recent crushing of pro-democracy demonstrations by Buddhist monks, is still willing to tolerate.

Growing up in Vancouver, WA a predominantly white area , I remember feeling a discomfort toward my features. This adjective was supposedly meant as a compliment, but the meaning of that word is "introduced from another country, not native to the place where found. We are not anchored in the same way, making it easy for us to lose our identities or feel lost trying to navigate the intersection between our cultures. This photo project has been on my mind since coming to Los Angeles because I finally lived in a place where there were people who looked like me. Growing up, most of the celebrities I wanted to emulate were white, with features that didn't match mine.
Even if the industry still has a long way to go — for instance, the major issue of whitewashing or casting white actors in Asian roles — it's comforting to watch these young stars kill it on the big screen. From Fresh Off the Boat 's modern Asian family to the majority-Asian cast in Crazy Rich Asians , the importance of appealing to all audiences is finally starting to become a priority for producers. And it's about time. Representation matters! Hollywood, are you listening?
