Equity Actor, Singer, and multidisciplinary artist Karen Joy Pangantihon candidly shares the pursuit of being an artist while feeling like an "orphan" since her parents retired to the Philippines. She shares how there are very few Filipinos in the entertainment industry (despite living in New York), how to be present even if her current circumstances are uncomfortable, and how it's truly a privilege to be pursuing the life she wants today.
