I associate myself closely with the Asian American experience. Being born in America, but raised as a product of a traditional Chinese family, I feel that I have an interesting history. My upbringing can be seen as a representation of a new wave of Asian immigrants. While Asian immigrants have a long and dubious history in the United States, it is only recently that Asians have even started to become accepted in mainstream “American” culture. Being the first child born to my family in the U.S., I feel a great deal of pressure and responsibility. While some of my family members have remained in China and Taiwan, they look to my brother and I as the future, and their goals and expectations of us are very high.
