Hi Nicole! Yup, I am sad that so many Asian women invest in this expensive (and scary to me!) surgery because of incredible pressure from family members. For the record, none of my non-Asian friends or teachers ever said anything about my eyes. It was ALWAYS the Asian aunties so it's definitely something women are doing to each other IMHO.
