16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Journey of Self Discovery

This piece seeks to capture one's acceptance of their culture. As a first generation student, most of my childhood consisted of being ashamed of my Asian culture. However, through self-discovery, I realize that diversity is what makes me unique. For that, I seek to show the diversity and acceptance of my community.
