Origin Story
At age 14, Kulap took her father’s side in an argument and her mother’s response would change her world. “Why are you defending him? He is not your real dad” would remain a phrase emblazoned in her mind forever. It would take Kulap twenty years to finally process her mother’s meaning. At age 33, a successful radio personality, actor, comedian and writer living in LA, she decides to embark on a personal journey to find out the truth behind her birth father, her family’s past in Laos and the immigration process that led to her parents’ arrival to the States.
