Hayley Kiyoko reveals how Hennessy XO helped her embrace Japanese heritage | Entertainment


Hayley Kiyoko has revealed how Hennessy XO has helped her embrace her Japanese heritage.

The 30-year-old Asian-American star spoke about how her collaboration with the fragrance brand had helped her when she sat down with her mother Sarah Kawahara for the company’s “Original Odyssey” digital series.

She told PEOPLE magazine: “It was really cool to be able to reconnect with my heritage, to live it and share it with my mother, which I never really did.

“I was very excited about this opportunity. It was actually extremely emotional. I’m still touched by most of the things that are remotely vulnerable, but it was truly amazing.

“I also learned a lot from her, and I think for her and me, it was a moment that we will remember forever.”

Hayley – who will be part of the Hennessy XO Mid-Autumn Festival, hosted by Harry Shum Jr. with performances by Eddie Huang, Guapdad 4000, Niki and Bohan Phoenix – highlighted how the company contributed to the performance.

She added: “I feel like Hennessy is still supporting the AAPI community and they don’t just talk – they do it with actions, and so I’m really excited to be a part of this festival celebration of the mid-autumn. “

And she’s happy to see it growing with more Asian stars becoming mainstream names.

She explained, “That’s all I ever wanted. Especially growing up, all I ever wanted was to have people I could look up to who look like me, who I could. log in, and so I think it’s so amazing to see so many artists getting mainstream support and solving this problem. “
