Asian-American culture, for the most part, values education above all. Education is not an individual feat, however. Parents play a large role in their children’s education, and children must dutifully recognize their filial obligations and pay due respect to their elders.

Lee states that it was “difficult for me to gain the acceptance of the low-achieving Asian Americans” (Lee, 2009, p.21). Lee is unable to fully connect with some of the Asian american students, especially the new wavers. After interviewing a new wave student she states that “it was obvious I had offended her… I learned to be more careful about how I approached new wave students” (Lee, 2009, p.45).

A review of Eric Lius', The Accidental Asian, and his search for self-discovery.

Through Liu’s experiences, we can understand the struggle of identity and help students find their own. Finding that we do not have to have a strong connection to our heritage to have a strong identity and looking for our roots does not make us any less of the person we are now. Breaking stereotypes and understanding others is how we can help students in the future.

In today’s school systems, though some schools are more diverse than others are, there is always a mix of students from different races and cultures. There are no “white schools”, “black schools”, “Chinese schools”, or schools that completely and openly segregate and are racist toward students of different cultures. However, it has not always been that way. On California’s west coast, in and around the year 1906, there was much bigotry toward the Chinese immigrants that lived in Chinatown.
This paragraph from Kesaya Noda’s autobiographical essay “Growing Up Asian in America” represents the conflict that the author feels between her Japanese ethnicity, and her American nationality. The tension she describes in the opening pages of her essay is between what she looks like and is judged to be (a Japanese woman who faces racial stereotypes) versus what she feels like and understands (life as a United States citizen).

They believed it was important for all Asians to work hard, get good grades and keep themselves out of trouble. They also held a deep desire to earn respect from white Americans and “did not challenge discrimination or speak directly about inequality” (Lee, 2009, p. 40). By doing so the Asian-identified students kept to themselves and accepted the discrimination in hopes of getting ahead.

A great example of Noda’s struggle to find out her identity in the Japanese culture would be, “My race is a line that stretches across the ocean and time to link me to the shrine where my grandmother was raised” (lines 44-45). This means that no matter where in the world she goes she will always be connected her family.
Is being an introvert a good thing? Introversion is characterized as being inwardly energized. Although approximately *50% of the population is introverted, it is not considered to be a desirable trait. However, is it an advantage or a disadvantage?

I was born and raised up in South Korea for twenty years, and thus I know Korean culture very well. I also understand American culture as well, because I lived and worked with Americans for four years. I decided to choose this topic, because in my experience, I have noticed a lots of differences between Korean culture and American culture; for example how Korean or American treat older people, how Korean or American act in the gym, and about the differences in foods.
