"And just start explaining the money part of it, And that makes me want to ask you is Bitcoin money? Well, the title coming money and so is it money. I mean, you could say that lots of things can be used as money. Bitcoin Primary, um, role. Primary usage is money like his gold money. I mean, gold definitely is used as money. It's used as a store of value some ways. It's used as a as a. It has been used as a unit account and as a means of of transfer. Um, But not all gold is money. It's used For jewelry or all kinds of other things. Um, but Bitcoin pretty much exists basically, just to be money. That's what its invention was, and that's what it is, in an excellent way. I think you know that it does it in a much better way than any of the other forms of money, including physical things, like precious metals, or or even the current Fiat money system that we have. So yes, Bitcoin is money, and I argue that it's The best kind of money that we've ever seen. Well, I think one thing we can say for sure if you were trying to flee Hong Kong right now be a lot easier. Probably get out with the Some Bitcoin and it would be with £500 of gold. If you were rich. I mean, yeah were any of the kinds of for Fiat currencies of whether that's I don't know what the Hong Kong dollar is or the Chinese You on or any kind of money or U. S dollars. I mean, any time you're doing that you're basically relying on trusted third party of bank or payment process or something like that to hold on to your money and hopefully give it back to you when and how and the right amount that you asked for, Um, with Bitcoin. You don't have those issues. And so you know, I talked to people and I'm talking to my Jewish audience that they, you know, and and it doesn't have to just be Jewish people. People look back to Wartime and and, you know, I talk about World War two and lots of refugees, and you know that's my family history and tell them about you know what if you could have brought money with you? What if you had something that couldn't as easily be confiscated? Uh, that's a value proposition that maybe older people can appreciate because they have seen it And they know that that's happened all throughout history. People have been dislocated, You know, uh, dislocated from their Land and and sent away and they might need to take you know my family came to this country with with, you know, a nickel in their pocket, a ruble in their pocket and nothing else go. But with Bitcoin you can take you know your money in your brain. So that's very novel, And I think that's a real good thought that I haven't thought of a net perspective that you're saying that, uh, someone who was their ancestors more recently were immigrants. Would have more of an understanding of how useful that would be. I think than someone who like my ancestors, for instance, came over and like 16 hundreds, So you know we haven't had to flee or no one alive, knows anyone who had to flee. You know, in my family where your grandparents or maybe your great grandparents with somebody you can relate to has been able to pass that story down. Let's go over that.

How do I know that Because China took over Hong Kong last year and no one did anything, And there's a lot worse than election of all need. I'm Don't get me wrong Elections can be a terrible thing. That would be caused by the Russian regime that tried to have murdered in the last couple of years as well. But the subjugation of seven million citizens of Hong Kong to complete Chinese tyranny came at zero cost for the Chinese regime. I mean, in fact, the unleashing of a virus that has killed now at least three million people all over the globe, including 600,000. Americans has come at zero cost for the Chinese regime. I do not think that the West has deterrent power against China and Russia anymore. I think everybody knows it, including the Chinese and the Russians.

Hong Kong is the only place on Chinese soil that officially commemorates those that died in 1989. When the Army opened fire on pro democracy protesters. It's murder. It's a bloody massacre of Tiananmen Square. This year, the police have banned an annual visual marking the day they threatened to imprison anyone who defies covid 19 restrictions.

"Any advice for anyone looking to become a founder and start their own company so one thing that i wish i had done is i wish i had worked at a smaller startup for a period of time even just a year or maybe even consulted or freelanced for period of time. But i think that there's so much that you can learn about startups from being close to them. And i didn't know any of that i was in it and in particular. I think it's helpful as a founder to separate out the product or market innovation from the fundamentals of building a business. When i mean by that is we always talk about building a startup. it's visionary you have to think big and that is true about your market about your product about how you serve your customers but there are other basics how you set a payroll how you run a good hiring process that you don't necessarily need to reinvent the wheel on and actually if you either have experienced or no people who can help you with the fundamentals of operations of setting up and scaling accompanied. You're going to be so much more likely to be successful on the kind of product and mark innovation side. Because you've got that really strong foundation and kind of special question for you because this is what your company's about but you know our audience are looking to figure out what their passion is like if they can make a living off at how to turn interior. Do you have any advice for our listeners. Out there yes firstly. I would say that it's never too late to try something new. I think that you know now that i've been in this business for a long time. I've talked to people of all ages who were worried that they waited too long. It's like that old saying you know the best time for change was yesterday but the second best time is right now we live in a world where there are so many different career paths so many different and it can feel really overwhelming so i definitely recommend that people try different career paths out if they can either by shadowing somebody doing an informational interview even just watching videos of people or listening to a podcast of people in that role to make sure that it does sound like something. You'd be excited by. But i think once you get that conviction that there is a career path that you want to move in. I would just say it's it's not too late. You've learned more than you think often in previous jobs. And i really encourage people to be willing to bet on themselves because you are your most valuable asset. It's beautiful we'll to reckless interview will usually give our guests promote something firm. Not that they promote. Is there anything you'd like to promote today. Well i would love for anyone.

"Founder entrepreneur is really weighing which pieces of feedback do you need to internalize and consider and change in response to and which pieces of feedback do you not. And you know. It's it's sometimes easier if somebody is really rude about their feedback but there's also a lot of really thoughtful smart kind people who tell you good ideas that are just not right for your business and you've got to develop that sort of iron core inside that gives you the confidence to say. Thank you for that. I've listened. I'm open to it. But i'm going to go in the direction that i believe is right. I'm kind of wondering what's your current day day. Like now in how. It's kind of like change the past nine years since you've had the muse my day to day today is wildly different from the early days. So at this point you know the news has guess about sixty seventy full time employees and we're working remotely because of covid. Although previous to the pandemic we had big office space in midtown where most of the team worked out of so today i got up in the morning. I had a couple of big projects. I needed to work through. On some kind of strategic imperatives the muse. I spent a couple of hours emailing. I had several meetings with one with my finance team about our board deck which is coming up on thursday. Then i might have a meeting about com strategy for a certain team about how someone on the team is doing. I'm constantly tongling between everything from team and hr issues. Investors in capital issues our customers revenue sales team etcetera the product which is a big area that i love spending time. You know the marketing and the content teams. I think one of the things. I love about being ceo. Is that you really. You have to spend the whole business. You have to understand all of the different pieces. You don't necessarily understand them as well as the people who are close to it. And i think the humility of knowing that many people on your team have a perspective. That might be different from yours. They have better or just different information. You have to sort of toggle the fact that you need to be on top of everything while also allowing for all of these different opinions and perspectives on data from all over the team and i love that and i think that in the very early days of the start of start up.

"Back I think this is a question. A lot of potential founders hab basically like it was your first time fundraising for a start like a seed round. Was it hard to figure that out. Like what was that process like that out. It was incredibly hard and there wasn't a lot of content online like there is now about how to even pitch to investors. And so i mentioned before. I used to go to a lot of tech events after work i would try and meet other founders that i could ask them you know. Can you tell me how you raise your seed. Round what worked. What didn't work for you. I tried to learn as much as possible from other founders. So that i could make you. I can make new mistakes as opposed to existing like the same old mistakes that other people had made before. And i also learned by trial and error so the first couple pitches that i gave did not go well in fact i often now recommend a founders that they try and find some people to test out. Your early pitches on the you know. Don't pick the investor of your dreams to pitch to first or second. 'cause it's just probably not going to be that good and so you know i. I had to learn by trial and error. I also started to recognize different patterns. Such as i was very good very comfortable pitching the muse on stage so when i got invited to a startup showcase or a pitch competition. I often did well. And i was able to pick up potential investors and can build relationships there at the same time when i met somebody in a coffee shop i i was more likely to be treated like just a for lack of better words like a little girl and that was one of the hard things. Well i think honestly fundraising is just challenging. No matter who you are no matter. What your businesses. Some businesses have an easier time than others because they kind of hit on zeitgeist or they hit into a particular theme but generally fundraising is very difficult. And then on top of that. If you don't look like a classic tech ceo you know if you are a different gender a different race in different ability etc a lot of people even if they don't mean to they bring all sorts of unintentional biases into that conversation. And so even though you know there were a lot of ensure really kind you know. Goodhearted mid twenties men getting funded for their seed round a lot of people who met with me. We're like oh you seem to nice to six. You know you've seen so sweet. What are you sure you want to do this. It's hard and i'm very driven and very tough. But the way that tough and driven showed up in a twenty five twenty six year. Old woman didn't always look the same as tough and driven in the twenty five or twenty six year old man. And so you know. I got turned down one hundred forty eight times for our seed round before we ended up raising but a million dollars and that was fun. I dealt with self-doubt. I felt like i eight rejection for breakfast but again i believed so much in what i was building and also it helped in a weird way. It helped that some of the rejections were just patently ridiculous and that made stainless like the smart thoughtful investor really looked at the business and took me seriously and treated me with respect and then decided not to invest like that hurt because it made me feel like what am i am. I not good enough..

"I'm all in. I mean i. I worked feverishly. I've probably never worked harder than in those first couple of years. Perseverance paid off because about five months later we were able to raise our first little bit seed money and you know then then the business took off from there cost so i guess when you raise your seat is when you took a little cereal. If you're like okay. I can live off this for now. Lord of again alexander like we were kind of insane as founders so we basically said what is the absolute minimum. We can pay ourselves and still eat. I mean i am a freaking pro at not spending money in the early days of the music used to go to tech events almost every weekday partially because that networking was really useful and partially. Because i would eat dinner off of the appetizer trays. We paid ourselves forty k. At first which again. Living in in manhattan and brooklyn as you've got to really stretch that and i would pick up a bunch of business expenses. It was just enough to get to get the business further. And i think we were first of all we were still in are mid to late twenties so we were in a part of our lives where it was easier to be really thrifty and i just at that point. I thought you know every dollar that can go back into the business gets me closer to achieving our goals and so we prioritized the company and you know the ability to hire our first employees and invest in a new url for the business and like all these little things we prioritize to that overpaying ourselves because we believed that if we built something great you know the payment would come down the line.

It's there's still much lower in startups based but how you have to like. Just quit your job dive right away but i actually think it was really beneficial that i started working on this idea. I as a side project. And if i could go back and redo my career part of me thinks that i would have been better served working at a startup before i tried to start my own so that i would get some of that. Learning you know about building a technology company. The way when i was still getting a paycheck versus really like learning everything when i was supporting myself out of my savings. That's so funny. I felt so similar to you right now like you're beginning stages because i left my job at tinder in december after his side project for six months. Because i was like. I'm not getting that much on nights and weekends. So i've been working on my app fulltime for like almost like ten months now and just released last week and i was like i was just like oh live for year so we'll just see what happens but i got a lot of flack when i quit my job and i quit. My job layer than i wanted to because we were like. Are you crazy like you get things like that. Yeah for sure for sure and the thing is look. There's no perfect time right like if you wait long you feel like oh my gosh. I could have done it earlier if you go. If you quit too fast. You know you might run out of money. And i think like i got so much pushback when i quit my job and the thing is most people give advice or not advice. Most people react based on how they would react in your situation and a lot of people don't have the risk tolerance and that's okay but it means that just because someone else thinks that what you do is crazy doesn't necessarily mean it's crazy for you. It might just be crazy for them with their circumstance. They're set of hopes and dreams and fears. And i think that you do have to eventually take the plunge like i would never have been able to build this company if i hadn't been willing to let go of the safety of a paycheck and divan. But i do think it's a. It's a decision that there's pros and cons to both sides and i just always liked to represent the perspective that you know it's good to do what you did which is working i while you still have a paycheck if you can because also that that's where you learn. Do you really love the thing right. If you're willing to work on outside of work yeah okay so you worked on it fulltime and yeah when you something fulltime even on daisy fills stock. I noticed even. If i like. Well i have no idea do this but after a day or two feeling sock. You're like oh you kind of just figure it out because there's nothing else to do. I feel like if you have worked. You're like oh. I guess i'll just do work instead but you said that it was not a failure after that first year savings in you probably like discovered this and year. So what did you knew next. Would that immediately leads What happened well. The the short version is that the business itself was just starting to click. We were starting to see the number of users grow. We're starting to figure out a business model..

"Success framework. Whenever you're stop you know exactly what you need to do to get unstuck essentially. Do you think your representative of the typical hypnotherapist in L. Practitioner now? It's so funny because I think to. That's what helped me. Get along more clients, too. Because usually they're older and I don't see a lot of their hypnotherapist color so. So when people see me, there is so cool to see. That looks like me doing this. Because I thought felt like weird, that was like even thinking of this. People still think hypnotherapy is something like Woo, Woo and out there so you know I'm just here with like my glasses and I'm just like I'll still talk about like real housewives Beverly Hills in hypnotherapy I'm pretty just like. Regular, so they follow me for a while before a match league book, but they see that it's not. As. We were out there as you think it's just giving you the tools necessary and showing you how to tap into your subconscious, because that's not something we learned school. What do you think the media end filming? TV gets the most incorrect about hypnosis that it's like we can just force you to do something you don't want to do over the circle dis not at all. Funny? The pendulum is you can use it to increase your metabolism. What what? How so basically with the pendulum with your brain? Your brain controls your hand movements right? It's just like a lie. Detectors has like what the? Trapped like what's going on in your brain with your body movements, and so with the pendulum you can ask, and you could on the piece of paper like what's my? Level right now and then they'll swing. Like I'd like to increase metabolism now. How moves, so you can mentally increase your metabolism. Numbers basic level so I increased Fisa right now like. Sixty five. Now I can say. Can I increase it by twenty? And just swinging more because of your fingers, metabolism's increasing. Yes, so because is sending the signal to my hand. Little little to give it that little kick to do that. I'm holding it still, but the in voluntary movement from my conscious mind is creating movement. That's people play with the Ouija board is their subconscious. Not Really Spirit Board. It's like you're so conscious. Board sees the biggest thing about family is that they think you can control when hypnotherapist? Yet it's big like Oh, I'M GONNA! Make you like turned into a secret assassin like. When people say on afraid of him like while you're being subliminally programmed daily on twitter on instagram on any That's what the media is, and that's what created to do to able to share these ideas of how you should be living your life. It's easy way to wear tenants and rules of society or the culture that you're at you can notice the difference with British television versus American television and even media. I noticed something when I was younger, I was like wow, the kids on Canadian shows aren't as as kids on American shows. They were as superficial. Superficial like they picked real upping kids like Basho degrasse like these kids look, that's I I, liked the show more 'cause like these are real kids like they. You know like look like regular kids. At for American shows they picked based on looks I, and then acting ability the British. They really big on acting ability the really draw win, and so it's like you could see a difference between way casting in America versus casting Canada and casting in the UK and you think out the people that are doing the casting where they were raised their raised as. We're beauties importance, so they take back with them into their jobs. That makes much sense. Yeah, 'cause Britain is so much more about formal acting training and school so much more important there. In factory, and so use how subconscious influence within the media is perfect to us to infiltrate your subconscious in how you can. How choose things like just like when you see the two parties in the US like two parties, but it's based on US growing up. There's always good and bad right. It's never good and good or gooding bitter. Either good or bad and. If you WANNA be on this side. Then you have to be the part right. They're not really similar at all right, but then you see it's a lot of similarities or these two parties, and this is even in the UK how we have two parties and so based on us. How grew up where there's either good or bad it, so nobody wants to be bad knowing. The party that's bad once considered their party is the good one. What is your favorite least thing by your job? My favorite actually is right after session. It's like they have like a inner glow come Ou- when they come in to the fashion there like. An after actually like they seem more confident, and you could see visibly the weight being lifted off their shoulders. The lease mayor part is people they try to. Understand it or they're trying to understand it. They kinda like discounted. Maybe like just like I love meditation. I'm like well. You know that really meditation or people they follow South Care influencers or people that most quotes and stuff, and they think that is the same as like what I do and I'm like I'm not an influencer I'm sharing actual techniques that clients that you can use to. If you can't of me, do this hopefully. The more people that discover my account or discover therapy. They kind of see the difference. Because we're in is there to inspire you. One is there to actually help transform. DIVA dream job. Is there anything you're aiming for currently? I'm really excited to start.

Their applications were ideal, but they were excited, and they were focused, and the invention offended, and then I have applicants where they have really applications, but they would like turn in lay, or they would like. Forget something conventionally. They would off. As Oh I was like Oh, I can use hypnosis in my practice to help them. You know everyone feel like the optimistic. Applicants as douse the plan. And I was just GonNa. Stay there do the basic therapy program, but then I stayed for master. State for trainer straining. Wow, what does that mean you valet master in trading as a master practitioner, I'm able to perform something called a breakthrough session, so you spend a weekend with essentially, so it's almost like spiritual mental rehab and we Rohingya diving we go. To like your worst fears the shadow side of view, the negative stuff like bring that all up to surface. We make peace with it, and then we talk about realign your values across all areas of your life. Because a lot of times people say like. Oh, I'm the boss at work, but at home I fall back or do this like your identity across the areas of your life disjointed, and that's why you have stress. You don't have this overall clear identity of who you are in your life. Life, so we real- line all the areas of your life, so you feel and rebalance it, and then we talk about your real shoe goals for the next year two years five years your life. What do you really really want eventually? It's like you come in and you're like. Yeah, this is what I believe I want. This is at the end of it. You kind of like see like. That was not actually what I wanted. Okay, I get it now. That's very addictive 'cause I'm imagine you did it for yourself and you. If you career jobs so I've had that issue to someone like really. What's my identity Engineer. And I realized like I was like a certain person. Relationships within a certain person might family in that I was another person with my clients as like person that was doing marginally. No wonder you're tired got burnt out. You're like four different people are more not right is that is normal. We're taught to do that when naturally you should feel comfortable, just kneeing you in all areas of your life. Makes it so much easier. You're putting South I and being. Yourself and your naturally you so you're not always trying to be someone else. How do you Li- that with other people's expectations, but I'd say if you're younger or maybe female, not why? Right in the corporate world, saying they won't take you seriously unless you have a certain demeanor that you don't necessarily have your friends or your boyfriend. So how do you align that? It's more like a empowering exercise because it's like you are stepping into the role as because you may be trying hard because you subconsciously don't believe yourself. Younger is. Ask So. It's like highlighting to your strength. It's like actually you are pretty much sometimes the smartest person in the room. It's okay to be you know me it's like. If you have an idea, you should share it with the team. If you have a at home with your family, you share with them right? Why can't you share it with ut? Mount work. You know asking questions like that, so you're describing master, P, protection or any? There's next level trainer, so does that mean? Yes, so as a trainer I'm able to open up my own training institute. That's what forward institute is so next year will have. Have a location in Brooklyn so I'll be able to train hypnotherapist NLP practitioners and ESP also ricky wrapped in because I'm getting my master. Ricky also means you could actually train other people that actually makes so much sense. It's like I learned that ubt teacher. Yeah, as the Dow was even like even more our work, because it's like you really have to be a hundred percent. Invested into the law, the rules of mental laws essentially an into the lifestyle, so it's like I'm a completely different person essentially, and it's funny that I'm here New Jersey because this is like the perfect. Setting to see how different I am your family, 'cause they seem you grow up. They know you to eat certain way like my entire families looking at me like Oh, like I A, but now it's like this is me like accepted. How did you seem different to them? Now I used to have a temper like I used to have like a short fuse. Don't bother her leg. Don't eat her leftovers. Her leftovers. A So it's, it's just really funny. And then the energy like I'm more open, so I don't ask me for vice or check in with being for certain things, a more stable and ground in might clients they have you know especially with quarantine dealing with toxic family situations, so it's like everyone is you pushed out you create? Your subconscious minimum for certain behavior, and you create your subconscious minimum for like how much money you may how you allow people treat you once you creep subconscious minimum than people kind of fall in line with that. So you got your trainer and Masters Certificate for an LP and for hypnotherapy in Venice California. So would you do next? Because he also had this sales business people to raise money for their business. Is this the Ford Stop Solutions Yes? Yeah, so I actually got a online business manager for forward. It's like after. This work was like i. no longer really fell connection with these other business, but I knew like I have a lot of money invested in it and I was just kind of coming back to Earth I knew like the best solution would be just having someone to manage it. Not just like getting rid of the business had a team to salt. Lake I couldn't just all right everyone. I know that there is this. So I gotTA online manager for both businesses, and so that has been really helpful, and then before it started solutions I was trying to incorporate the mindset, but it was almost like trying to push it in there and I realize that the people that I would attracting. They either want one or the other for business, coaching or mindset. Let's like if they come to me for business funding I'm like so I. Want you to take a deep breath in so I decided to create the separate website for institute, and since I was going to start training, people just had as just separate instance, and I started incorporating myself into because before. It was almost like I, focused on the. The Industries I wasn't allowed personal brand gain involved in my other businesses. It wasn't me might face arm business really, but with Ford Institute. I talk about myself allot because I'm going to be hypnotized people so I. Want them to know like film. I am I. Know My values in why I'm doing this, so it resonates with them, and so they know who they're coming to see essentially as a practitioner. That's when I. To tweet a lot more as such postponed instagram more and really just start sharing. Everything I learned my mental before and after like where I was and where I am now, and it's you're here now. You can get here with me in. As little time as also. This wasn't something that took years of therapy something that I was able to do within under.

"Again. For many mainlanders. They return of Hong Kong marks. The End of China's century of humiliation call with them is China's and Hong Kong should be returned to China. Hong Kong is part of China and Hong Kong. People don't like aging. Well you guys. There's something wrong with you guys. So most of the mainland Chinese they really supports Beijing's position on Hong Kong. The thing is in the years after the handover more more mainland. Chinese people came to work in Hong Kong and the more that happened. The more Hong Kongers were like. Wow we are truly not the same. We've spent over a century living under different governments different economies and different cultures. And they mourn wanted to assert their own identity even more which frustrated China to no end and you also have the Chinese government and people in China increasingly fitting that autism Hong Kong. People are kind of almost like spoiled children. He's always asking for more already. Get more than anybody else in China. Scott and Acumen asking for more and more of their rice being protected still. China's infrigement was relatively slow going until two thousand three six years after the handover. The government of Hong Kong introduced an amendment to article twenty three commonly known as the national security. Bill it was essentially an anti-subversion long that many Hong Kongers saw as a threat. They're civil liberties for the first time. After nine hundred thousand nine again you had half a million people marching in streaks Hong Kong to protest against the article. Twenty three naturally shoot. It was the largest protests in Hong Kong since the tnn massacre and it worked. China shelled the bill indefinitely but then regrouped and came back even harder around twenty twelve eight demand from Chinese governments that on contra changes educational curriculums and Mick. Hong Kong's edgerrin curriculum patriotic. And then you have the high school shootings in Hong coming out and say but did spring washing us. We don't want brainwashing. Be One copper free liberal education. This is the Environment Xi Jinping walked into when he became the leader of China in two thousand thirteen and a year later in the streets. A Sea of umbrellas. The symbol of a mass demonstration underway in Hong Kong students and young people formed the umbrella movement a series of sit in protests that oppose. Beijing's decision to have more say in control over Hong Kong's electoral system. Hundreds of thousands packed the streets of downtown Hong Kong as police fired as many as eighty seven cans of tear gas determine demonstrators shielding themselves with umbrellas and spawning the so-called umbrella and in the last three or four years you even have some of them beginning to talk about maybe we need to look at south determination because Hong Kong is a Chinese colony will never be allowed to have democracy and those words of self determination and independence caught the ears of Beijing. Red-light Fash Hoar Cross Beijing. The Chinese government and they come up with an even harder approach and that is the background to the events that erupted in Hong Kong in the summer of twenty nine thousand nine hundred which brings us back to the beginning of this episode and to the current protests that are still going strong and only escalating Beijing has has violated. These promises in has been trying to really encroach into Hong Kong controlling Hong Kong Roy Moore eroding autonomy. So all of those have been really God. Hong Kong's young people to feel that they have no future that has really tricker this assistance from young people and at the same time. We also want to understand that. This trend has been increasing over time and it just fall from the sky. Now you're talking about a younger generation of people in Hong Kong who feel that they must now stand up and fight for the core values of Hong Kong. The kind of languished using you said if we don't fight we may not have a chance to fight for Hong Kong's caught Banu any longer so we will now make our last stand. We may all four but we have four. At least we fall having defend our values..

"There were some small protests but mainly it was quiet people in Hong Kong knew. They had to accept their fate. They had no other choice. Some Hong Kongers were genuinely going to miss the British who let's not forget were colonizers you will had parents taking their children's tool the Hong Kong government offices and other places to have pictures with those colonial symbols before they were taken down but not everyone felt that there were some Hong Kong people. That saw the handover in a positive light. You also at the same time have Many in Hong Kong who fueled that is good for the colonial eras to end. We are.

"Culina was British again. The idea that the European colonial empires who simply restore to status quote was not really bury balloonist stick and this time. Brian realized that the Chinese were no longer going to tolerate second class. So when the British governor return to power she had to make changes to post Hong Kong and he stopped to look at political reform for the first time the Chinese population had a voice and therefore reasons to feel that they are citizens of British Hong Kong and a commitment to the future of maintaining Hong Kong. I say British colony gaining respect from Hong Kongers was crucial for Britain because China was suddenly making is at Hong Kong again and wanted it back in the course of the Second World War. The leader of China Jenkins shot ask for the first time for the British to return Hong Kong to Chinese sovereignty so the new that and so as Hong Kong started to look a bit more democratic China started to look a lot more communist.

Picking country will never again be an insulted nations as Mao we have stood up when Chairman Mao and the Communist Party took over China in nineteen forty nine. Both sides immediately closed their borders and the long trend of open migration between China and Hong Kong came to a screeching halt so for the first time after nineteen forty nine Hong Kong had a settled populations and this settled population will change and they were developed a very strong clear sense of identity.

"Code. Now I will. Also caveat is with the fact that in Hong Kong Hong Kong was one of the earliest cities in the world to adopt a lot of private kitchens. Because RENT IS HIGH COOKS. We Cook creatively. But they can't afford to do it in Hong Kong because real estate is so expensive. They ended up doing them. Apartments and so private kitchens. are very popular. Dot Com. And most of them are not fully licensed by the health pirate but it started really important food movement in Hong Kong. So I would say if you're just having your friends don't worry too much about it. If you're trying to build a business of the pop ups you should absolutely be figuring out how to get yourself fully licensed and legal and ready to go okay. So the one you made when you were sixteen did you just location create the Menu. Invite friends friends friends more or less. Yeah that's YEP that's basically how it worked. You taught the people in team. Basic Skills Tasting menu back then so the service was a little bit more controlled so people are ordering off menu as they ate whatever we gave them and then we also took reservations in In advance anything normally think of that was really hard or anything. I'm you're glossing over a lot of proverbial culinary school education here right. Most of good cooking is just putting food out at the right time. The right temperature with the right amount of salt sugar fat and acid. Almost everything can be fixed with SALT. Sugar some type of oil in some type of finger or lemon juice or whatnot so make you have your basics down in. Don't forget those couple of things so you opened your Pub Restaurant Highschool for fun and then you went to college at Yale and majored in cognitive science. Did you think you are going to continue making public restaurants in college? I absolutely didn't I went to Yale under the illusion that I was going to be a philosophy major because my best friend's name in high school was Plato. And then soon after I met somebody by the name of K Teo who was a year below me and she convinced me to open pop-ups at Yale to so sort of despite my yell education that spent all my weekends cooking these pop-ups I'm of my dorm out of the basement. I was in speed. Dial for a lot of new haven restaurants Chefs when I was in class and I spent all of my winters in my summers cooking in Japan. Either finding restaurants or with grandmothers. And that's how I built up sort of my early understanding of food. Did you enjoy it? Of course absolutely that's why I'm doing what I do. Yeah I why did you decide to go into restaurants? Set of a philosophy internship or something. Well it just seemed like the right thing to do because I was already doing so much of my time. I suppose it was a genuine interest. I was very much attracted to kitchen culture. In the beginning kitchen kitchens are quite familial terms fraternal. They feel a little bit like sports. Teams also especial forces units or like parts of the military the very intense sometimes for better or for worse. But there's something very attractive about kitchen culture in for some reason instinctively had wanted to spend as much time as possible in kitchens. How did you find these first internships restaurant with the way they work in the culinary world is the dodgers in stages are basically unpaid internships? And the way you get establishes you turn up either between lunch or dinner service or first thing in the morning and you wait outside the door and you try to get compensation with the chef in say. Hey I love your food. I'M GONNA wash dishes in washes floors or I want to cook for you for free. I WANNA learn how it is to job here. Whatever it is and then you worked at further delile during which uses of the restaurant in the restaurant. Size you up. So it's sort of a cross evaluation where you tried to figure out whether this is the place for you in more importantly the restaurant sort of decides whether you're fit for the kitchen and that's kind of a tradition in how most people eventually get jobs there. You just have to be able to hang basically and you have to fit in well. Did you even bother contacting the restaurant beforehand or you just showed up. Some of them in Japan didn't because you know. I was traveling through Japan with my knives in my backpack in the test would stop in places and say. I really like your food. Can I do for you? But in places like Hong Kong. I might try to get into restaurants that really respected by just turning up for you know if I knew somebody in the restaurant place. Seattle Means to touch with your chef. I'm interested in spending of time here. Why were you hopping around so much restaurant summer? You want to see as much as you can and given that I would only really be able to spend the whole summer at each location at each restaurant. Three months is not a long time at all so why not cut it shorter in his bounce around in the photo has many places possible? What kind of stuff do you learn how to behave in kitchen to make food recipes? Nice technique that sorta thing was there any particular questions you want to work for that? You really had a good time in. Japanese restaurants are really fun. The culture really crazy. It's super super intense. I worked at the restaurant called Keeping Houghton. Kyodo that's three-star Michelin and that place. You would live in the restaurant that you cooked at. All of the guys live together in bunk beds while shower together and we worked basically seven. Am until one am six days a week and it was amazingly intensity was maybe the hard I've ever worked but the commodity was amazing because you're living and breathing together and everybody starts off as a first year as a junior which means that. There's no meritocracy it's all how long even at the restaurant and how hard you've worked. So when did you know you want to work full time? You keep saying you just kind of stumbled into it. Yeah I thought it was be definitely shift for a long time. I met my other CO founders In New Haven. They're doing their pasties masters degrees in. What not Yale. And then they came up to me and said Hey. We're GONNA build this Chinese concepts. Do you want in the beginning. It was just a Chinese fast casual and it. After I joined the team it evolved into something a little bit more ambitious a little bit bigger with a more sort of broad goal of trying to change people's understanding of Chinese cooking so they convinced me that we had something good going on. It would be exciting to work on it together. So that's how we started working together. Is that when you were like? I guess this is my full time job now. I know pretty much I met with them. A couple of times in an afternoon time may with him at a coffee shop in an remember just going back to bed and think to myself. I may or may not have been offered a job. I'm not really sure and a week. After we graduated we working at you know and three months later. The first restaurant is open. And I'm cooking there so you. It's one thing leads the next kind of heaven quickly. Yeah how did you meet the Jansy founders again Kim Pop pop-ups at you so they discovered you more or less to behead this silly idea of trying to open a restaurant with chef and then they were like wait a minute? We're opening restaurant. I guess we needed chef. There is a twenty one year old doing whatever. He's doing across the street in his dorm. Let's talk to him okay. Let's work together mets. How Nice so that was the first rush on? Newark was more permanent. So I was wondering it Founding pop ups I mean it's totally different as business. You have business goals you have. They expressed it need to accomplish something. In the case of everything we do is to accomplish this mission of getting people to properly understand the diversity with Chinese cooking so everything you do has to push towards that fact whereas in Hey that's pretty good food up there in. Try Not to screw it up so people want to come back when we do it again. So how did you go about tying this Russian? What was that like a Founding building it was building Zulic while you need a location. You need a team to hire a team. You.

"Vogue magazine has named the sweet green of Chinese food. Today we're going to discuss how he started his interest in food how. He helped launch multiple restaurants. What his day. Days like as a culinary director and chef before we start to trump interview was recorded before the outbreak of Kevin Nineteen and does reflect pre quarantine conditions style Interest in to begin for you usually when I speak to journalists on podcasts or otherwise what want me to say is that my grandmother was a cook which is true and that the passion for is in my blood which is also true but that is by no means the entire answer to the question. I don't really know where the interest in through came from. I'm from Hong Kong people in Hong Kong food. We'd like to think culturally in critically about food. My Grandmother was a cook that was trade but by no means was she excited or passionate about being a cook in fact one of the first things. I remember her ever telling me was. Don't be a cook. It's one of those things I've been in the industry basically for ten years and it's gotten to the point where it's just what I know how to do But I feel like there must be more to that. Well I mean to put it bluntly I suppose. I think I've always thought it's important to think deeply about food. Food is a really interesting and easy medium through which to tell cultural stories. It's a really good starting point because if you like certain cultures food you tend to like their people. It's a really great way to bring together. A lot of sort of modes of thinking purchased to learning. Thai food is like kind of people. Is I for into anything? Die Young and the more you're invested in that food more you invest in culture and the people in learning and trying to mark mindsets and whatnot In no small part why Chinese food. I'm really interested in trying to change. Mostly Americans understanding of Chinese food. Chinese food seems to be this monolithic thing of the US. It's like over the last one hundred seventy or whatever years that has been developing in the. Us We've come to understand has one thing but really my understanding of times. It's diverse it's very colorful saying Chinese food to me is like someone a European food. That's how diversities we have twenty three plus provinces we have fifty plus ethnic minorities we have hundreds and thousands of cuisines and techniques in ways to. Cook food. We've been making Chinese food definitive Chinese food for at least four thousand years so there's a lot to mind a lot to explore with a few. They're playing in your childhood. You realized you're like war into food than the average person. I don't think I'm more than the average person. I just chosen as my industry. I am by no means a Foodie. Keep with food news really care about trends. I think three times a day which is pretty average. I think okay but you did open your first pop restaurant at sixteen and embedded newspaper factory in Hong Kong. So what prompted that then right? I mean a good time hanging out. Teaching French cook serving people being able to tell stories through food. Yeah you might be true. That might be ally. It's just there's a writer in Potter called Edmund Divall and he spoke at school wants to says every is basically a poet. It's just so happens that my former poetry is pottery so sometimes I feel like that you know like you just go by the World Trade to investigate the world understand more about it so happens. Your medium is food. Your medium is cooking. I think my career in food is an for curiosity about culture as oppose. And perhaps the question that I've set out to answer in the last couple of years is y. Is Chinese food so good? Why Chinese food so great and why does it it the recognition that deserves okay? So I was wondering though I'm being making a popcrush on takes a lot of effort. You have to assemble waitresses. Get people show up. I'm in amid doing that right now. With my roommate 'cause he's really looking and I was like you should open population at our house. I mean it takes a long time. So was it just kind of like. Oh Yeah I WANNA do. It seems finer. What did you have any hidden purpose center? There was no hidden purpose. Who was more like a? Why not type of thing? I was in high school and it all started because I was hanging out with my dad and I was sixty nine Last summer in Hong Kong. And what you WanNa do this summer as a island what I wanna do he said. Why don't you open a master in my thought was? Yeah why don't you like? Why wouldn't you and we just went ahead and did it. What's really fun about Papa? Best rants in particular. Is that the process for putting up a restaurant together is often quite haphazard it bootstrap -I and it's Kinda step by step. You roll up your sleeves and you just do it and you make it happen. You don't know your obstacles until you come across them which is a wonderful feeling. Ama- causes your cooking to be a little bit more creative in reckless than in a restaurant setting because you're beholden to nobody Restaurant basically there often isn't even expressig need to make a lot of money. It's a fun little type of business model and a project that is also most of the time illegal but a lot of fun to try. Yeah how did you decide? What's on the menu? It just seemed easier to cook food that you news Invented this idea for cuisine called Hong Kong cuisine Hong Kong cuisine and Cantonese cuisine but on cuisine as Hong Kong food. That's an amalgamation of all the influences. That Hong Kong had absorbed over the years whether through a British colonization or Japanese occupation or an affinity for Korea or American influence or capitalism. Or whatever answer the cuisine in Hong Kong weird mix that was very homey and felt real authentic to me. So that's how we started was cooking this Hong Kong cuisine. A really good example is for whatever reason a lot of families would eat at home. Would eat pan-fried codfish with teriyaki sauce. And the codfish usually would be bought from a Western supermarket. It would be frozen and it would often be imported from somewhere in Europe. The teriyaki sauce would be Japanese brands from Japan in a bottle. Ready to go and the way that butchered this fish. They cut the fish steaks. What's the word Dorsal laterally? Straight through this fine and it's a very odd way of cutting fish that is popular in Europe with the Japanese sauce. Hen Fried in peanut oil. Which is sort of Kennedy's oil in Hong Kong home? And that's the type of thing that was kind of interesting and odd but that's the type of reserve the first Called goes back from when I was in Hong Kong without sixty question fail. I only know how to follow a recipe online. Like step-by-step exactly. So I'd never really made my own recipe. A what was the first recipe really felt. It was your own. Who's no such thing as those thing? Has Authenticity things making things up. But every time you cook you know let's say you follow a recipe for a Mac and cheese and you taste Mac and cheese wins on the plane. You're like Oh this is salty. Nothing you add more salt Original recipe so. That's the first step. You believe that you have more control over the situation than a recipe gives you and you innovate by having things here and there and all recipes. All Cook Learn by learning basic ideas or concepts for recipes. Exception you innovative upon them you substitute ingredients for the other ingredients. You substitute techniques for other techniques you change measurement of specific ingredients for example. And you end up making a dish that is different enough that you might be able to claim as original. Do you have something you remember making that? You're like really proud of my first signature dish back when I was sixteen. Was Clay Pot. Rice in Bowtie in Cantonese refers to a small clay pot. But it's also boats I as in both I five in both is fine as Klay Pot rice and this sort of Hongkong Southern Chinese Cantonese style way of cooking rice in a clay pot. Clay pots are wonderful. Because they're semi perforated which means that as you're pushing into a clay pot that heats in that steam gets trapped inside the pot with hot air pushing air through clay. So you have this sort of like lovely Tursi earthy aroma to the rice without having to add any ingredients into it rice. It's pretty technical dish which also known as kind of peasants or rather low cost dish because on top of the rights you would put chicken sausages or whatnot that would release the oils in flavor. The right so it's kind of like a one stop shop for your meal and so that was my first signature dish and we originally had been doing with pork belly which isn't super common in Hong Kong but the Came from me traveling in Shanghai for a little bit before. We opened that pop in fall in love with shanty-style braised pork belly so there's a little bit fusion there but that was our original dish. Sometimes it would make with Taro. When it was the winter just because it was a little bit more starchy warming. It was pretty good for others. Who MAY WANNA try making their first. Pop Oppressed Sean. Was wondering if you kind of had a guide will mentor. Lots of up and coming to coax and families and people in general who are excited about opening the first pop ups and obviously the most important thing to just go for it. It's a little chaotic. And it's the haphazard process but you won't really learn from unless you go through the motions and you actually do it. That's usually my first piece of advice. I work with the city. Seed in new haven for Appro- employed the food business accelerator often which has new haven locals. Who are hoping to build their businesses. Just hey my mum makes delicious. Food might partner makes amazing sausages. We want to figure out how we can do this. In the puffs out place people love events. People love experiences. People love things that are odd and special. So pop-ups are really great sort of like activation 's for cuisine for example. Can you imagine doing a Filipino? Pop Up in new haven. Most people have not had Filipino before in Oakland so cool. This is a great way to learn about the so I was the vice gopher if you want to get a little bit more technical and you have aspirations to move your popup into something that's a little bit more sustainable business wise. I would strongly encourage people to start learning how to write up business models so in my line of work. It's a little romanticized. It seems as chef spend most of the times in hot kitchens yelling at each other quickly and have tattoos and they're really sexy but really most of what shifts do is kind of boring and difficult and annoying. We don't often get to do what we want to do. All the time. A lot of administrative work a lot of writing. Business Puzzles looking at your. Pnl's inventory management hiring firing HR. It's a lot of business stuff in restaurants tend to be smaller companies than. Let's say a retail operation so the chef or the head of the kitchen who comes up with creative ideas for food ends up doing a lot of these administrative things so I think people who started in pop ups who want to build a sustainable business out of it should definitely learn how to do some of those things at learn how to write basic business models and do basic accounting or if they wanted to do maybe a one time event or a short while. Unita location I officially on the record should say yesterday the perfect you know the key here. Is that once you start charging people for money. You're providing service and if you're opening up to the public it becomes a health hazard if you don't.

"Who mainstream network to be willing to take just by chance that you were there. It's so difficult. When news breaks people expect it so quickly? Now that if you're there and you're an option prompted. Have you always been this lights graphics reaching out with that just easy radio? It's probably always been there right but like the lifestyle that I lived in Florida never needed that? I guess you would say so. It was very surprising to me to be able to pull that stuff off. You know in those handful years. I had traveled bottles. Dozens of countries just sorta on my own as a freelancer and was like really shocked. That I was able to start to pull it off but I wanted it really bad and that's usually a pretty good motivator whether you have the skills or not yeah so when you move you didn't know anyone and you just sir hit the ground running looking for stories. Biscuit US Nairobi. Kenya as my base hand had rented a room from fellow American. Who lived there? Who essentially I would say like took me in from the streets of our hilarious to think about but I had moved into a Kenyan boys youth hostel because he will target eight dollars a night and provided free breakfast like the hood of Nairobi and was working with a local Kenyon College student who is working in journalism and I kind of offered up to my said. Hey I'm coming to Kenya. We work together. You help me. You know is a term for an in our world. We call fixer somebody. Who's like a local knowledge local? He drives to you. You can translate for you. He knows people know sources nice sort of commandeered him ham coming. I've got access to these networks. We work together. I could tell stories. I can help make you money. We can help movie stories law together and we worked together there for a couple of months then eventually ended up. Being an American Jew was buying cars from Dubai and importing them through Bossa on the coast and selling them in south Sudan got a free ride into Sao sedan when he came to drop me off back in Kenya and he's like radio listeners. Like no no come live with me. Look we're great friends to this day? That was sort of the start of that. It's like a wild wild ride. Wow okay ended up and so just as yeah exactly so many stories so many untold stories. Some of the best reporting. I think I've done. I really love it out there. I still back. I love that area of the world is so much to me. Had you even gone before you said you chose it because it seemed like there is a lot going on their story? What I hadn't yeah had been there before I had done tons of research and I had met people who lived. Today I landed was the first time I had ever been in the area. I mean I looked at it strategically of like I could stay Miami and try and travel to these parts of the world. The logistically no savings student loans. You really like struggling financially. Didn't make sense to Miami. Trying poverty story had to strategically put myself for Ford -able relatively close interesting and to sort of Nairobi. Popped up on the math for me. How long did you live? There is a freelance journalist. So I was there for seven months in Nairobi and I continued. My freelance work. After that side moved from Nairobi to Mexico I had done some boarder trips previously and at the time that was starting to pop off again the sort of like NOCCO war that plays a game of whack a mole so I went back to Mexico. There for few months went to Cuba for a month. I started trying my hand the Latin American World. I was born and raised Miami. Keeping Puerto Rican. I've always been interested in that world and being a part of that coverage which is what I do more or less now and then from there. I believe I was in Mexico. I had just gotten back to the US and found out about an opportunity to embed with US troops in Afghanistan. And that was my first time heading back out to that. Central Asia region. Minute was with a newspaper called Stars and Stripes newspaper. How do you decide where to go next? Line as you leave Nairobi. After seven months I thought it would would go back in fact still had an apartment there motorcycle that I left there. I was very sure I was going to go back but in my mind. I was sort of globe-trotting freelance journalist can't hold me down. I'm making moves ended up a Latin America. Really enjoy that for a little bit. But I wouldn't mind. I sort of lived in. Kenya would always end up going back. And then when I got wrapped up in the Afghanistan Gig. That was thirteen months. That was over a year that I was there. It sort of changed my mind a little bit. You know but it was a really intense year for me. And that's when I started looking towards. What sort of reporting can I do stateside? That will allow me to work internationally but still grab a little bit more stability allies back in the US. And that's when the opportunity. Cbs News actually came up. Okay so that comes to be so I had just done thirteen months embedded with troops in Afghanistan. I had talked to some executives at. Cbs News Cryer to freelance work. In sort of throughout the had always had interest in having me sort of joined the network but we never found the right place yet man. There was an executive. There was always in constant touch with sending him stories so after my year in Afghanistan and I knew that I didn't want to resign that contract I reached out to them and I basically told them had this new set of skills that have been able to form abroad. Which is being this one man van who can shoot who arrived at it from radio to television to produce these long-form pieces. No is there a place for me at the network and the networks are really attempting to adapt to these new types of mediums. That like that. The the new demographic that they're always going for for using mobile and quick videos to podcasts. Nellie staying do these things and there was an appetite for it at CBS time. So they traded and I think those are like two or three years prior to me. This job is called digital journalists. Just like very all encompassing everything's digital. Everything's journalism I call Swiss army knife so the network that anywhere across the globe whether it's in New York City whereas looking at a time or pt in Brussels or in Asia anywhere. It happens that we could be the first ones that we could be so quick. We have these digital tools on hand getting back quickly enough that we would be valuable to the network and so they hired me and I was based out of New York. Did that for three years. But we would sit in his newsrooms and watch these news. Blurbs come across the street snipe it was something that was big enough and we can get to it. Quick enough it will launch out the door and within less than a few hours. You could find yourself anywhere across the globe today would just Stanley play. There's a yeah I mean that's nothing new journals and that's the way it goes but I think that the amount of time that it happens because there's so many flights now and technology is so much more streamlined constantly constantly road. Actually I had done the math just recently because of the year ended but I think I spent hundred seventy something days in the roadmaster. I like He lay by like is under side. Don't think you would be able to last like that if he didn't really love it. You know it's an industry that we people out very quickly because it is such a fast pace just like very traumatic way of living every day. Something New and craziness that you're seeing and things that you're experiencing with different people gotta love it how long you can do. It is another question. It's like you know definitely takes its toll on you but for now. It can't be exactly picture what else I would do. Which may be a problem. I don't know but so I definitely love it. How does it feel to have a company paying for you to fly out now having to fly yourself and get the data and pitch them? It's a very nice. It was one of the reasons that I actually wanted to eventually make poetry. I was doing a lot of good work but it was without a doubt limited in resources in funds. Quite frankly safety often times because of the amount of money I was able to put into place I mean we were sharing progress sometimes with other freelancers. We just didn't have the resources as I always knew that I really wanted to have the resources to the audience. Which is we're talking millions versus publishing on Youtube and twitter in states that have to eventually get to the network so it was a great feeling knowing that you have this entire organization that was going to back. You Back Your Story Sack Your Passion. Segovia just convincing the others at the store you want to cover should be covered. That's the daily struggles journalists. I was going to ask about that. You flee yourself to Nairobi South Sudan. Afghanistan did usual safety entire time for all your stories. Well Safety is relative It's true because there are some people across the globe. Who will look at? What's going on the United States and say well? Do you feel safe where you're at you know when you look at some of the alarming numbers of gun violence and crimes this year so. I usually answer that question with that safety relative because you can go to. These areas of the world absolutely. I'm not trying to downplay the violence. Where the Traumat- that these people experience? That's why we're there to highlight and to shine light on those issues but to say that because I lived in Kabul Afghanistan was constantly endangered. That would be accurate. These are cities. I can talk specific cities but let's use Kabul for example because a lot of people have this alarming reaction so you lived in Afghanistan for so long and we rented a compound in a relatively wealthy area of Afghanistan. There was a lot of diplomats and foreign NGOs that live there as well. It was a high walled compound with security. You could walk to the market ten or fifteen minute walk. I definitely blended end a little more than some others might in the area address in local out the shower. You know so I could get by a little more for the most part. You can wander a little bit and as long as you were smart and you knew what was going on. At the time you could check the news of the day. Make sure you know there was no retaliation expected. You can live a relatively again. Relatively normal it would come in waves. There was times when we knew that there was mass bombings happening throughout the city. And we need to stay inside so sometime stateside for like a week or so. And that was out of precaution. So of course. There's waves like the idea that like you're under this constant bombardment. It's not accurate because we're talking about a country with millions of people who go about their daily lives and for the most part can hopefully at least forget the Going on inside the obviously that could be very useful so now. Cps You are a digital journalists clash producer. What does that mean exactly? It's a way of saying what we need. We'll get that done for you. I've always worked in the realm of creating new titles for myself because what I've done have necessarily fit any sort of like traditional silo positions. They had established already so digital girls. While I didn't create position. Cbs News was like relatively new at. Been trying to mold into what I do so what that means for me is like what's your story happens so I've been doing a lot of border stores like a new policy in effect. That's affecting the border. But you get there first and you start interviewing people getting all these things on tape saying that back. Then they'll send in. Let's say this is a big story? We need to anchor. Okay now. He turns producer about interesting therapy for the anchor to come interview and then owner is breaking news happening okay back to journalists mode. We're GONNA go to where it's happening. We're GONNA film it. We're GONNA get live on television. So all the technical aspects to the actual interviewing to the writing all encompassing term of digital journals and the idea is just to basically be whatever the network news or whatever information. He's telling what's next for you. What do you want to be doing that do know? Yeah it's always like a really interesting question for me because I enjoy where I'm at right now in terms of the company and having the resources to tell the stories that I want to television world. It's sort of strange experience being at whether networks because the networks are nationwide and in terms of media United States some of the largest media companies in the world some happy with where a matter of gaining audience. It's probably the biggest audience. I'll be able to garner what I'd like to do. More of continue working within the realm of International Latin America Caribbean and sort of build a resume revolving around that but. I don't know that there's like another job title that I'm trying after you know it's so broad I'm produced. What do you do? You like eastern produce youtube videos you can produce like award winning documentaries select titles fine. That's great gets the job on what I'd like to do within. It is definitely continue. What might be called deep stories that I'm very passionate about. Is there a person out? There has trained career. I don't know that there's one person that hides the job title. I want people who are doing the stories I want but the weird thing about that is like once it's been done it's been done. You know you WANNA BE. This guy.

"And it started message. News networks before imports. Funded and I'M GONNA be living in Nairobi. Kenya confusing. I wasn't but I hope that it's going to be so then. You look back up to like six months of college and you've published stories from abroad and you're going okay. Like is that not. What a foreign i. It does publish a story from abroad so now to my resume for correspondence school. This is the new school with your host Christine Welcome to new kinds of school where we talk about career paths. You don't normally get to hear about in the classroom every episode. I talked to someone with an interesting life path and learn about how it got to where they are today. Hey guys welcome back to season two of the new school with Christine Hong. I'm your host Christine Hong and I'm so excited to share all the amazing people. We talked to this season to kick off. We're sitting down with Alex Pena. Who started off as a foreign correspondent and is now a digital journalist and producer for CBS. His career has taken him from Kenya and Mexico to Cuba to Latin America to Afghanistan where he was literally in the war zone with the soldiers every day to do work to Miami. Yeah this guy has lived in a lot of places and he's barely hit thirty. Last year he won an emmy for his work with CBS for his coverage of the school shooting in Parkland Florida and during the show. We're going to cover how he got started in journalism how he got hired at. Cbs and what he thinks it takes to be a good journalist before we start. I just want to drop a note that this interview was recorded before. The outbreak of cove nineteen in the US and does reflect pre quieting conditions. All right. Let's get started. So when did you start concentrating on journalism so journalism? I started in my senior year of high school. And you can SORTA call it that. We had like a local within school television network that we sort of started up so that was like my first taste into producing news talking like very low level. Stop but started my interest right like this is a way to tell stories. You know people started coming to you with problems and issues and can we talk about this and you start to get that. I little taste as like. Oh like you're sort of a voice for the voiceless. Epa thing was like skate videos with friends and editing and going on like we can make TV and this is fun and then transforming that into like TV news at the high school level. Then I got involved at the newspaper as Close University where I went which was sexually starting up their video program so I would essentially do television news reports but then they would end up being published online. Then I had some internships throughout college that let me do actual television reporting than pretty stories that they would run them. That way or vice. Versa GRUESOME FOR THE SCHOOL. Newspaper's website and they would run those stories to publish online half of it airs on television. The recipe gets rid of for an article in fact for a long time. I called it multimedia. A multimedia journalist your platform journalists a million different ways to say it so it was like the platform kept changing but we just kept on stories. When did you realize you want to do it? Full time I would say that like Freshman Year of college and I think a lot of people have the same. What can I do travel? Okay disturbing something has a way to do that. And how can I combine the two? Nobody will take a chance on a nineteen year. Old trying to four correspondent. Writes Trying to do this myself. I'd say the first sort of Big Story. I did was two thousand ten when I was still in college and lives in south Florida and the earthquake in Haiti. Hit and we had a large. Asian population lives here. Miami has was southwest Florida. Where I was in school at the time had met a few of them. Through some other stories I worked on and one of my friends was going to Haiti to try and find his family get lost. Communication with earthquake came and sort of that. Let me go with you to let me go with you. I'll tell your story. It's a way to go there. It's a local angle on a much bigger story so I followed him to Haiti. After the earthquake he goes on you know basically a citywide search of his family and documentary holding an come back to college produce a story. I was interning at a local station every time has that been hearing this story. There were like Okay too short. And anyways I'd give that to them. They aired it on local news with that so blood. You're just like this. Sounds like a story. I'm GONNA follow it? Yeah I mean that's really what I've been doing like ten years later. Still doing the same thing like this is a cool story. Let's follow it and then that's what you do but I would say that was my first taste of like okay like you can make this happen if you're the one with the story you're the one meeting interesting people. They've gotta run. It was sort of like my game plan for the next five years of freelancing some may say for the better or worse but that's what I did so after you went to Haiti. Was that when you realize like. Oh this is why I really like doing. I WANT TO BE JOURNALISTS. Full time it was definitely one of the first really momentus reporting experiences that I had I had done some pretty significant work at the local level but to be on a story where sort of the whole world is watching and the whole world is looking for information. You sort of learn pretty quickly the power information and what it can do so unfortunately a lot of that. He donations and the help that was sent that way after the earthquake were fumbled. But at that time to see that what you were reporting to have people responding with how can I help is super powerful? It was the first one that I was doing. And it was just as grand scale of the world going. Please tell me what's going on. And what we can do to help. I'd be like there wasn't an adventure but more important than it was that so that definitely sparked my interest or held it for the last ten years. Did you know what kind of journalists she wants to be like? Did you dream career in mind when he left college? I knew I wanted to be a foreign correspondent and there was a few ways of doing that you wanted to television always loved videos medium. They have always been a visual learner. Myself so I knew that that was the route I wanted to take zoe a handful of television networks that do it and all the people who are doing what. I do are much older than I am much less diverse sites. What can I do to sort of skip that step? That may take some people's ten to fifteen years to get where they want to be in one of the ways to do that was freelance so rather than taking a relatively you know a foot in the door type of job or these internships offered themselves to me right after college. I thought let me figure out a way to via foreign correspondent. Obviously it's not going to be for who I want it. I let's be foreign correspondent than for the medium that you on for the network that you want versus worked for the network and try and become a four correspondent and so that was sort of the path I tried to take. I had met someone who worked in the field and he told me. Look at a map and see what the world is about to know or is about to learn so like when I think of four correspondent covering Afghanistan or Iraq. And things like that. And he's like but that's being done like look at a map evaluate research learn in trying to predict where you think the next important hot spot of the world is where people are going to need to know the most and go there and build your sources and build resources and build a career to be ahead of the curve when things happen and so whether I did it rightly or wrongly. I ended up choosing East Africa and I bought a one-way ticket right out of college. Because I started looking at the map we started looking at like a growing insurgency of Islamic militants in the Middle East and sort of how that was spreading regaining power and what presented itself to me at the time. What Al Shabaab in Somalia which was like a sort of smaller little brother groups al Qaeda if you will who had been involved in that area of the World Spreading Central Africa we're getting involved in Somalia north and south and I thought okay. This could be like an interesting way like they speak English. Kenya relatively safe place to live to cross the border from Somalia. South Sudan's a new country like half of the youth of the world is in in Africa outs arising economy but also has conflicts. Let's try that. Let's see if that works and I just started doing like everything I could to learn and research about the area before I went started messing other. Correspondents Live Their Messaging News Network. Say I'm a foreign correspondent and I'm going to be living in Nairobi. Kenya knew anything. I wasn't but I hope that was going to be and Sort of like snowball effect from there ended up moving there a week after college. I actually didn't do as much molly work as I wanted. Ended UP IN SOUTH SUDAN. A lot at the time because there was a lot of border conflicts. Going on because of the recent secession of south Sudan who had become the newest country recently and sort of built like I only did this for six or seven months but I really liked built a little network of journalists as well as stories so then you look back up to like six months out of college and published stories from abroad. And you're going okay. Like is that respondent does publish a story from abroad announcing my resume foreign correspondent so sweet learn republishing the steroid. I did all sorts of things so there was. There's a network abroad called Voice of America. News independent news organization that's funded by the US abroad to cover issues relating to America's foreign inches so they have a radio network. And if you've been anywhere you can usually tune into it and they have one set of Nairobi that was covering East Africa Reese out to their their bureau chief and told him Guillaume ready to go. He's like good to know about a month before I sold my first story to them and it was terrifying was like oh my gosh. That's not working. I'm getting hungry. I don't know if it's GonNa work for me. And he eventually called for a trip to South Sudan and I published a video and radio piece for them for a few hundred bucks a pop something like that and is sort of against about their own that every set to ABC News said. Hey I'm a reported for Voice of America News Year. Any just going to be doing this ended up selling some raw footage to them. I think I did a story About a border clash happened and you go up to see nine head working for ABC and Voice of America. I've got these stories you any any interest in having me and I'm just sort of moved from there and then eventually ended up settling majority with waste of American news and I sell maybe two or three stories that week radio video and then would help out any way cancel from appearing on camera for some stories to just writing like tex pieces for dot com or anything that they would take really Which I do think that that was the key was like diversity of being there and being able to do anything. You'd.
