Red Bluff High School
“In my essay I discuss the discrimination my family and I have faced as Asian Americans. Growing up in a rural city I faced many racial injustices starting in kindergarten. I then learned my father went through the same problems when he arrived in California at 10 years old from the Philippines. I chose this category to bring the discussion of Asian hate to light. I feel that many Asian Americans’ stories are silenced and dismissed in American history.”
Wow, Sierra! I am also the daughter of a filipino dad and white mom who grew up with lack of diversity. I see you, I hear you. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece. I am so grateful!
