Bridging Cultures with Andrew Chau (Boba Guys)

Episode Summary

In this week's episode, Minji sits down with Boba Guys co-founder Andrew Chau for a deep dive on the elements that contribute to culture and how we continue to shape it. Even before he became half of the dynamic duo that made Taiwanese tapioca pearls and milk tea mainstream, Andrew has been fascinated by how things work, how people interact and what makes us tick. He talks about riding bikes in the Jersey suburbs , celebrating college graduation at the restaurant where his parents met as immigrant workers and actualizing his dad's refugee dream to pursue whatever he wanted. Together they discuss how our unique journeys, values & habits translate into the work we do, which is why his own business is driven by a mission statement to bridge culture. This conversation is better than (OK, just as valuable as) any MBA course of how to take an idea into reality and how to connect it to the world around you.
