We talk to Adele Lim, writer on Crazy Rich Asians and the new Disney movie Raya and the Last Dragon.
She talks about her journey from TV to film and her struggles along the way.
Adele tells us she wrote some of her best work while coping with the anger of pregnancy-related discrimination, the monsters in TV writing rooms and why, as an Asian female, she felt she had to be better and harder working than colleagues around her.
She talks about becoming an accidental role model after her very public pay-parity dispute around the sequel to Crazy Rich Asians and how that difficult moment ended up turning into something really positive.
And she tells aspiring writers to be ready to face adversity but also how they can be brave and speak up and build the career they want.
