I’m different. It took me a long time to realize that and it took me even longer to realize that it’s OK to be different. Born to a Chinese mother and a Mexican father, I was constantly asked “What are you?” like I was some alien. But over time I realized that what were challenges as a kid actually gave me strength to overcome adversity as an adult.
