VIDEO: Meet a Japanese-Dominican Chef in Miami

Gadiel from BuzzFeed's Pero Like goes to Miami to meet a celebrity chef who happens to be Japanese-Dominican. Chef "Ninja" shares his story, which includes a bit about former Dominican dictator Trujillo accepting Japanese families into the D.R. He also shares some advice for young Latinx following their dreams and talks about his annoyance when other Latinos don't believe he's Dominican or speaks Spanish, when in fact he no longer speaks Japanese and knows minimal English. Fun video!
