Origins: An Immigrant’s Journey in America
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.
