We Are More Than Numbers: Portraits of Children of Immigrants
There are around 20 million adult, American-born children of immigrants living in the United States. I’m one of them. I’m the daughter of immigrant mothers. My roots are not directly below me, beneath this ground that I stand on, but instead reach to many parts of the world. In discussions about children of immigrants, scholars often deal with statistics, but rarely with the actual individuals who have their own voices and ideas of identification. We’re more than numbers, more than the reports that analyze our educational attainment and economic standing. This series explores the conversations I had with children of immigrants. By deconstructing our cultural identities, our childhoods, and the ways in which people misrepresent us, we're reclaiming our individuality.
