Never in my teenage stripping dreams would I have imagined that a story starring a complex Asian American sex worker would become a blockbuster feature film. Destiny, the character played by Wu , exhibits a nuanced relationship with the so-called model minority myth , monetizing her perceived sweetness and studiousness to demonstrate how the stereotype can also be performed for profit. Sacrificing themselves to help their family is a stereotypical narrative that is often told about sex workers in Asian tourist cities as well as migrants to North America. She does not shame Destiny, not the experience of many sex workers who fear telling their loved ones the truth about their financial situation. No apologetic mixture of gratitude and self-loathing.
