Lea was recently recognized as one of the TIME100 Impact awardees for serving as the “Voice of Disney Princesses” and serving as a “role model for children of color.”

Lea, who provided the voices for the Disney princesses Jasmine and Mulan, told TIME Magazine that she is delighted to “be that for someone else,” particularly the younger generation. Her Tony Award-winning performance in Miss Saigon in 1989 was another example of how a young person from Southeast Asia may achieve great things.
