“It’s an honor just to be Asian.” - Sandra Oh

Feeling some kind of way today. 
Energized, relieved, nervous, proud - all at once. Like I’m about to summit a tall mountain but the last few steps are the steepest. 
I’m scheduled to graduate with my M.A. in Neuroscience & Education, I’m capping off my 5th year of teaching, I’m working on projects that I am so passionate about, and dang... it’s exciting but also intimidating.
I am forever grateful to all my Asian Pacific American babes who inspire me to keep going.
Let’s break the ceiling for all the young ones out there following their hearts. Walang hiya. No shame. [A Pinay with curly hair is sitting down and laughing with her hand over her mouth. She is holding a can of coconut La Croix and the sun is shining behind her.] Film: @ragerismatt 📸

In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, I thought I’d share a bit about my background growing up as a 1st gen American-born Chinese. It’s always been a multi-layered experience, & I’m sure some of you will be able to relate.
.
It all starts with my dad, who immigrated to the US from China right after the Cultural Revolution with little more than $30 in his pocket. Communism had him working a couple years of hard labor on a farm, so when the opportunity came up, he moved to the US to pursue a PhD.
My mom followed not long after, giving up her dream to become a lawyer back home so that my brother & I could grow up in the US & have the opportunities that come from holding a US passport.
.
Her 1st job was as a babysitter to help us get by while my dad was still a student. In exchange, the family she babysat helped her learn about American traditions & culture. I still remember our 1st little Christmas tree was from that family.
My parents’ lives were full of exciting firsts & heartbreaking realities that forced them to assimilate into a foreign culture.
Later, my mom studied to become a nurse since that was a practical job & was always in demand. She took night shifts as a nurse until my brother was born.
I can’t imagine the tremendous sacrifices both my parents made to help get us to where we are today.
.
Yet growing up as an ethnic minority in the rural Midwest of America where I was often the “token” Asian, I didn’t appreciate any of this. I felt rootless, swaying between wanting to fit in with my white friends & American-ness, or upholding the traditions & culture my parents brought over from their upbringing in China. I was constantly trying to blend in & win acceptance- to prove that I wasn’t an outcast & that I belonged.
.
I started to resent my “double” identity. I resented not being allowed to have a boyfriend, having to get straight A’s, & taking piano lessons. I was embarrassed bringing my lunch to school, because the other kids always made faces when I pulled out my lunchbox. (Isn’t it funny though how dumplings & tofu & stuff is now considered “trendy” & cool? 🤷🏻‍♀️)

The month of May is #asianpacificamericanheritagemonth and #borderlinepersonalitydisorderawareness month. As an adopted Asian American, I previously did not possess a sense of identity (along with other factors) which lead to a diagnosis of borderline personality disorder in 2016. For a long time I remained silent about both of these two significant aspects of my life due to shame. I am tired of being ashamed-  Now, I am proud. Proud that I have and continue to overcome a personality disorder, because a diagnosis will never define me. Proud that I am Korean and grateful for my Italian family, because I am really Asian but my REAL family is the Carelli family. Proud of my growth as a musician, singing with joy, playing piano without fear, and becoming a leader by directing and conducting. Proud that I can share this with you all despite the stigma surrounding race, adoption, and mental illness. While I’ve struggled to break my silence for the past four years, I am choosing to speak out now. Things are looking up.
