 Lela Lee Biography

Lela Lee is an actress, cartoonist, and writer. She has acted in films, television shows and has been featured in numerous national commercials. She was series regular Jodi Chang on the SyFy series "Tremors," and also recurred as surgical intern Bonnie on "Scrubs."

Lee draws a weekly comic strip titled "Angry Little Girls" which had its origins in an (un)animated video titled "Angry Little Asian Girl" that was drawn in 1994 on the floor of her college apartment. After she finished drawing and editing the video in her college class, she hid the vhs tape in a drawer because she was ashamed of the anger she expressed. A few years later, she dusted it off to try to make something of it. She added 4 more episodes to her first video and had a lightbulb idea to make t-shirts with ALAG on it. She sold the shirts out of the trunk of her car and sold out by word of mouth. She expanded the name to Angry Little Girls which became the umbrella name for her comic strip world. In 2003, she started her own corporation, Angry Little Girls, Inc., so she could license her art to merchandise companies. Her merchandise line was sold in malls all over America and her first book was finally published in April 2005. Just two months later, her first book went into its' fourth printing. The "Angry Little Girls" books have been translated into Korean, French, and German.

In 2012, Lela was nominated for a Harvey Award for the book "Fairy Tales for Angry Little Girls." She is a public speaker who has spoken at universities such as Cal Tech, Harvard, Northwestern, NYU, UCLA, U Penn, Vanderbilt, William and Mary, Yale and many more.

  • I’m Asian, American & Angry!

    Asians are considered the quietly assimilated model minority in America. But this perception is often not true. Subtle and overt racism exists for many Asian-Americans who are living in a country that regards them with stereotypical perceptions. Lee's work "Angry Little Girls and the Angry Little Asian Girl" shows the frustration of being "Asian, American, and Angry!"

  • Finding Your Voice: Advice for Women of Color

    When you're a young woman, finding your voice can be a challenge. Women are raised to be obedient, pretty, nurturing. Females are not allowed to express anger. When you're a minority woman, the challenge to find your voice is compounded with the expectations of race on top of expectations of being female. As a young woman, Lela Lee experienced this double-edged challenge. Yet, in the face of strict traditional parents with their Mother land cultural standards and the dominant societal views on women in America, Lee was able to find her true voice and find an outlet. Lela shares her advice for finding a voice as a woman of color.
