TINA COHEN-CHANG

"My eyes, are up here! I am a person with feelings, get out of my grill! I am a powerful woman, and my growing feminism will cut you in half like a righteous blade of equality!"


[ Tina's Canon Bio from Tina's Wiki ] Tina is presently a junior at William McKinley High School, where she actively participates in the glee club. She pretended to have a stutter when she was younger to push people away from her due to her extreme shyness. Now, she appears to get along with most of the other members in the Glee Club and after hooking up with Mike Chang, has become more confident and outgoing within herself.

Tina dated fellow glee club member Artie Abrams, but she starting seeing Mike before breaking up with Artie (whom she later dumped in the lunch line at school), as they fell in love at Asian Camp. The relationship between Tina and Mike has been the longest-lasting relationship of any to appear on the show to date, lasting almost two years now.

Tina is very much the awkward outsider. Shy, soft spoken, and meek, Tina has spent most of her life doing her best to stay under the radar of everyone else around her, whether it be social or academic. Her fears of being noticed were so great that when she was still in elementary school, she devised a fake stutter to aid her in getting out of doing an oral presentation. Seeing how effective the stutter was on that specific occasion, Tina began to use it in order to protect herself from having to interact with anyone who she didn't feel comfortable with. As a result Tina's only friend for a long time was Artie, who felt they shared a connection through their mutual disabilities. The only time that Tina seems to allow herself to come out of her shell is when she sings. When on stage, she is bold, brash and without fear, even going so far as to sing I Kissed a Girl in a surprisingly aggressive manner at Glee auditions.

Upon joining Glee, Tina has slowly started to relax her defenses, to the point where she has formed other friendships with Kurt, Mercedes, Brittany and a few other members of the Glee Club. She has even 'lost' her stutter, which was her greatest social defense. Her brief romantic relationship with Artie was the final step in over-coming her anxiety, as she admitted to him for the first time that her stutter was fake. Unfortunately, this admission resulted in an abrupt end to the relationship, which could have possible sent her back into her shell. According to Tina's Facebook profile, she enjoys listening to emo-core and speed metal music, and cutting the hair off her dolls.

Tina has now become much more bold and open about her feelings. However, she is not without her personal insecurities. Tina has always been open about being Asian and is proud of it but on many occasions she has also shown annoyance at being stereotyped as one. Her insecurities have gotten the best of her on several other occasions as well, most notably during her performance of My Funny Valentine for Mike and her performance of I Follow Rivers when she was heckled by the audience.

She loves Mike with her whole heart, and Tina and Mike are known as "Chang Squared" or "Team Asian", Tike or McTina Cohen-Chang Chang.
