What is it like to live as an Asian woman in America?

Through short stories, essays, and poems, the author shares the intimate details of her initial journey as an immigrant at the age of twelve from Vietnam to the United States, as well as the fun, and often confusing, events she experienced.

Ultimately, Origins: An Immigrant's Journey in America will help you be more empathetic towards victims of discrimination and violence and gain a better understanding of the personal emotions of the victims involved.

In this book, you'll read interesting stories such as:

  • Asian-American underrepresentation in the media and Hollywood and the racial dynamics of some of your favorite movies and shows, including Sixteen Candles and The Big Bang Theory.
  • The problem with a news article published by ESPN titled "A Chink in the Armor," in reference to basketball player Jeremy Lin.
  • The day Thy officially became naturalized as an American citizen.
  • And More

Those who have faced similar experiences will feel understood and less alone. If you are interested in racial representation and discrimination, or simply want to learn more about Asian immigration stories, this book is for you
