Soo Lin is my inspiration. She is a strong independent Asian woman with a professional job, making her own way in the world. She is like me and so many of my Asian friends. I want more representations of Asian women like her on British television.

Asian women are generally only portrayed in a certain way on British television and given very stereotyped roles - arranged marriages, battered wives, domestic abuse, etc etc.

Soo Lin breaks the mould. She is different. She is my inspiration. Shout out to Soo Lin!
