It took me almost 22 years to discover my physical contribution to the world wasn't just that I was Asian, but I was much more than my skin color. I finally felt comfortable in my own skin and fell in love and acceptance of my reflection in the mirror. Asian men are sexy and I wanted to prove an example.
The message I wanted to express through DEFIANCE is: don't be shameful of your skin and background. Don't hold back, because the more Asians are seen as sexy and confident, then society will have their eyes and mindset reconditioned. Representation matters.
I picked Ronald to study and explore nudes, because I felt comfortable and connected with DEFIANCE. I learned, I could let my mind wander on fantasies in order to fulfill my DEFIANCE contribution. You have to go in with the mindset that you are sexy, while expressing your confidence.
