My story has quite a lot more to do with the people and circumstances around me than me myself. I was born to Chinese immigrant parents in Toronto, Canada but moved to largely Caucasian, suburban Connecticut while I was still barely a toddler. So I grew up here as American but was different in significant ways. Other than the language, culture, and citizenship barriers, my parents were much older which lent itself to even more distance and tension growing up. However, perhaps the biggest difference was that my older brother had severe Cerebral Palsy which brought tremendous strain on the family and massive judgment from people. When we ate in restaurants, the stares would blare from every set of eyes in every head in the place. Despite this, my parents considered me the “normal” son. Meanwhile, the entire world seemed to see me and us as anything but normal.
Looking back it was this incongruence with everyone around me; it sparked my fascination with understanding human nature. It ended up becoming an incredible blessing. I was so conscious of being different from those around me I developed a point of view that had a wider perspective than societal and cultural norms. Because of this, I have always known that we share more profoundly in our common humanity than anything we think separates us. It’s a point of view the world is in dire need of right now. It’s time for us to come home to our Humanity.
