Singaporean pair behind YouTube channel TiffWithMi, seeing that speaking Chinese is considered not ‘cool’, make videos in the language to counter the stigma

  • They know their videos may get fewer views than if they posted in English, but say helping young Singaporeans connect with the language is worth more than money
