More About Me
I grew up in a seaside village near the coast of Southern China and immigrated to the United States at the age of 9. My parents and I are very fortunate to be here but not without hardship. My family found every mattress and everything television set we have ever owned on the sidewalk.
We jumped from relative to relative kind enough to offer us their home until we could stand on our feet.
After I graduated from university early, I had to rewire myself on the concept of self-actualization. Once I learned to un-imagined my own permanent doubts, I accepted that I wanted to have a better life for myself than the life I had anticipated growing up.
I worked. I struggled. I dated. We married. Now we are expecting our first.
It took me a few years to convince myself that I deserved the blessings in my life – which was terrifyingly exciting.
I was given a life sentence to hopelessness and instability by my family’s fundamental poverty.
Becoming parents at 28 years old will be the newest and hardest journey my husband and I will ever go on, but something we look forward to.
The best privilege of my 20s was being able to rethink the definition of life, family, and starting my own little tribe.
