A victim of harassment for her interracial relationship, Celeste made headlines in 2018 by publicly exposing her harasser on Twitter, raising global awareness of the #MRAsian movement. Celeste is now at the forefront exposing the “misogyny hiding behind the mask of anti-racism,” educating and fostering change through the power of words.
