Awkwafina covers the May/June 2021 issue of Vogue Singapore magazine photographed by Yelena Yemchuk.
“In a world that tells you that Asian women should be a certain way, my grandmother showed me that she was the financial neck of my family and held us all together,” reflects the award-winning actress, comedienne extraordinaire and ambassador for Gucci’s new Beloved Line. “She wasn’t meek or shy; she was loud and confident and wanted to make people laugh just like me.”
The May/June ‘Perspective’ issue of Vogue Singapore is available for sale online and in-store from 5 May 2021.
