With over a million followers, Jo Koy (@jokoy) is one of the leading comedians in the world. He has three stand-up specials on Netflix with a fourth one in production. He brings in cultural family humor to his sets, ensuring laughs for all. He is also set to headline a Filipino-American sitcom at ABC.

Chef Vallerie Castillo Archer (@chefvallerie)is the first female executive chef at the premiere Hollywood restaurant Yamashrio. Even with a late start in her career, she has made a name for herself. She incorporates Filipino cuisine to a plethora of dishes that give her guests a taste of her culture.

Director Diane Paragas’ (@paragasdiane) award-winning feature film, Yellow Rose, was included on Entertainment Tonight’s “The Best Movies of 2021” list. The film made history being the first Filipino American film theatrically distributed by a major Hollywood studio. Diane was also featured in the A100 list of Most Impactful Asians of 2020.
