Nora "Awkwafina" Lum

In her high school years, she often found herself reading a lot of books, watching various films, listening to and producing music, all of which reinforced her self-identification as a creative overachiever. She is unique in her field as of today because she is one of the few Asian female rappers in the industry. Her music has since been featured on NBC, NPR, The Daily Beast, New York Magazine, Buzzfeed, Bust Magazine, Jezebel, Gawker and Cosmopolitan. She is currently featured on MTV’s Girl Code and hosts a late-night talk show web series called “Tawk.”
