Sandra Oh Through the YearsShe reflected on that dark time: "I just didn't want to be alone. So it's like, 'There's got to be a group of Asian people somewhere, hanging out on a corner … I want to be with them.' And then, I also realized that my thinking was too small. So at first, I reached out to a couple of the fellow Asian crew members, and I was like, 'Why am I only inviting a few people?'"

"It's like, 'Hey, you guys, I'm going to be here. There's something going on here. If you want to come, a group of us are going.'"

She expressed that it "meant so much" that she had the support of "so many crew members."Sandra concluded, "I felt like there's a lot of fear, and the only thing I felt at that moment to offer was to be strong. Reach out in the face of fear; practice reaching out to others."
