Long Bio:

Betty Ming Liu is a journalist, artist and award-winning writing/journalism college professor on a storytelling mission. She describes herself as the JournalArtist™ who uses hand-drawn doodles, multimedia and any other means necessary to keep her students and audiences awake.

She has an international following for her popular personal blog about life as a recovering daughter of control freak Chinese immigrant parents. Betty’s thoughts on this topic have been widely quoted and led to interviews with major news organizations, including The New York Times, the Associated Press and People magazine.

Many Asian Americans know Betty from her 2011 blog rant over the horrors of tiger parenting: “Parents Like Amy Chua are the reason Asian Americans like me are in therapy.” She continues to share her views on parenting best (and worst) practices on her blog and in speaking engagements.

Betty’s interest in in community issues took her through a first life as a nationally syndicated columnist for The New York Daily News, where she covered diversity and the immigrant experience. She has also worked at Newsday as a digital journalist.

After she quit to do the mommy thing, Betty reinvented herself as an academic, where her new take on diversity has meant teaching as an adjunct at many colleges. She currently teaches at NYU, The New School and Westchester Community College. 

Betty, who grew up in New York City’s Chinatown, is a divorced, single mom. She lives with her three cats in Hastings-on-Hudson, N.Y. Subscribe to her blog at http://BettyMingLiu.com.
