NAME: Christine Chen⠀
BORN: San Francisco⠀
LIVES: On an island near Seattle⠀
I was the first in my whole family tree born in the U.S. My whole life has been a journey of balancing the expectations and norms of two cultures. It was hard. I was confused. I cried a lot. It took me a long time to think this was cool, but now I am proud of it. I own it as the most unique part of me.
