This cultural autobiography represents the story of my life, particularly how being biracial has stood to impact my life. In this essay, I detail the events which led to my mother, a Laotian immigrant, to America and the influence of my heritage on the lives of our family. This essay was a final project for my Honors Asian Culture Seminar and is the intersection of both my in-class cultural education and life experiences. In writing this piece, I have tried my best to showcase my unique perspective on life and how these experiences emphasize the importance of cultural diversity in all of our lives.
