Cold Tea Collective is proud to partner with Dove and Refinery29 on Self/Service, a content campaign that spotlights the ways different women and girls embrace their appearance, shatter beauty stereotypes, and invest in their self-esteem and communities. 

We were invited to participate in this campaign with other Canadian, American, Latin American, and UK publishers to amplify the voices and experiences of Asian Canadian women.

In this three-part series, you’ll read and hear from Asian women whose stories, learnings, and reflections were both similar and different based on the conversations they’ve had with themselves and their communities.

Coming soon are three very different stories:

Reflections on raising my Filipina baby girl

For Maria, motherhood is a balance between being a guide for her daughter and providing the freedom to define her own beliefs. She shares her reflections on her own standards of beauty and how they were shaped by her Filipino upbringing.
