Episode 5: Back to Basics with Minji Chang
As we’re getting over the high of our recent showcase, we truly go back to basics and where it all began. Long and Elsa are here with an extended conversation with the incredible and talented Minji Chang, founder of Kollaboration SF, former Executive Director of Kollaboration, and now artist, actress, and host of the podcast “First of All.” In this personal, intimate conversation, they chat about acknowledging one’s value, growing up and living in the Bay Area, the imposter syndrome that follows leadership (and starting a non-profit), Kollaboration war stories, and combining artistic vision with accessibility, among much more. There’s a lot to unpack here, and trust us, this is a conversation you won’t want to miss. Listen to First of All wherever you get your podcasts!
