‘I grew up in California more than half my life and I see myself as me; I don’t see myself as an Asian model. I think part of the reason I bleached my hair was that I didn’t want to be typecast as an Asian model, I wanted to be me. But diversity is very important and to be completely honest, they just want cookie-cutters a lot—not all—but a lot of the times, they do. I can’t say I expect people to be colorblind, because as long as we have eyes, we’re not going to be colorblind, but I hope there comes a day when it’s not just cookie-cutter models. It’s going to be about personality and your look beyond being just an Asian or black or Hispanic girl or whatever.’ — Soo Joo Park
