Taking a step towards diversity
Marginalization has become synonymous with my identity. Being an outsider has just been a way of life. Even through the plight of racism, we have done our part in turning the other cheek or standing up for our people but it was to no avail because it was just another reminder that we will always be seen as immigrants, foreigners or strangers.

The true Turkey Day tale
In kindergarten, if you lived in America, you probably had a black-and-white construction paper “pilgrim hat” headband plopped on your head, if not an “Indian” paper feather headdress.

Lots of stuff(ing) to be thankful for in America
I walked into my first Thanksgiving dinner at the age of eighteen with the vaguest concepts of turkey, cranberry sauce and going round the table one by one to say what we’re thankful for. Most of my Thanksgiving knowledge came from binge watching Friends during high school, so I’d only ever seen the holiday as a caricature; I didn’t grow up drawing turkeys or hearing lectures about pilgrims, and I had definitely never heard of a green bean casserole.
