Family Conversations: Don't Be One Of Those Asian American Young Women...

Sunday, April 13, 2014

I was driving back with the second oldest and as is my way, went on a rant which went something like this:

"Don't be one of those girls who just cares about what she looks like all the time, goes clubbing, winks at boys and doesn't attain to be more. Sometimes a dime a dozen in our community only caring about the outside. You know what's not? Asian American women like your mom who has her masters and doctorate, raises a family, been published, respected by her peers. That's what you shoot for. That's your role model to be more."
