Dina Yuen, a.k.a. Asian Fusion Girl, has launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to bring her television show, Iconic Asians, to Hollywood.
Go Girl Travel Network recently caught up with Dina to learn more about Iconic Asians.

Dina’s background spanning seven industries (industrial engineer, trained chef, musician, author, consultant, web designer and entrepreneur), allows her to establish a unique rapport with each Iconic Asian. At 12 years old, she was the youngest to have attended the Nila Chandra Culinary Academy and later went on to become a cookbook author who chops and sautés with culinary celebrities like Master Chef’s Vikas Khanna. She started her first company at 21 years old, an experience that gave her profound insight into Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi’s challenges in being a female leader. These days, her fans ask her for tips on skincare and fashion- a theme that encourages her to chat with Jason Wu about his couture designs for First Lady Michelle Obama.
Through AsianFusion’s People Features and her upcoming book (Iconic Asian Americans), Dina has an established voice as a journalist focusing on Asian subjects with direct access to many of the Iconic Asians in America and around the world.
