Anna Akana Dishes About Being an Asian Queen Bee on 'Youth & Consequences'

Anna Akana is opening up about her brand new YouTube Red series, Youth & Consequences, which is out today!

The digital influencer stopped by Build Series in New York City on Wednesday (March 7) to chat about the series, where she plays the queen bee.

“If I auditioned for something like this in the traditional world, I would never get it,” Anna says, knowing it’s the truth. “They would never hire an Asian woman to be the queen bee of a school.”

She adds, “You would have a Regina George type. Someone blonde, icy with blue eyes…”

Anna also shared that being on a show like this tackles a lot of issues that normally, she wouldn’t be comfortable tackling on her own personal channel.

“It has a lot of messages that I do believe in. I’m very into mental health awareness, and I believe in suicide prevention for teens.”

See what else she shared about the series below!

Head to YouTube Red NOW to watch the first two episodes for free!
