Asians are often portrayed as the model minority. But Roselyn Keo’s extraordinary story has shattered that myth. A former exotic dancer, she inspired the movie Hustlers starring Constance Wu and J.Lo and authored her memoir The Sophisticated Hustler.
In this week’s podcast, Roselyn talks about being raised by her grandparents, dropping out of high school, living on her own at 16, what men talk about in the strip club, what goes on in the champagne room, post-pregnancy “fishing”, hookers in hotels, seeing her story on the big screen, and how her book details her struggles, resilience and triumphs.
You can buy her juicy book on her website link below.
