I AM ....


I am an adoptee.
I am still seeking answers to my history.
I am easily jealous of families that are fortunate to have shared genetics, for I will never have that.
I am a part of an Asian community, but never disregard that I am also an individual.


I am aware of and acknowledge the racial injustice in our society.
I am always and will forever be viewed as a foreigner by the public eye based on the color of my skin.
I am a descendant of an oppressed community of color that has been consistently discriminated against through the likes of the government, media, and society.
I am not afraid to confront ignorance.


I am a pianist of 17 years.
I am a critic and critique other musicians and their work.
I am a devoted fan of hip hop because it is the most lyrically challenging and profound music in the music industry.
I am a firm believer of music as a global language.


I am a believer of faith and God.
I am not one to judge another’s faith or to force my beliefs on them.
I am not bound to a single denomination, but rather the fundamental beliefs of Christianity.

Do not judge me based on false assumptions.
I am an avid believer of voicing one's own opinions, so expect me to do so.
