About this submission

This story is an homage to my family and heritage, growing up first generation Chinese-American. It explores two characters who share the same culture and bloodline, but are too distracted by their differences to realize that there are more similarities between them than they care to admit. Eunice, in risking everything to chase her own dreams, is a symbol of everything her mother worked for but also all that she has sacrificed. On paper, they are nothing alike, yet they reflect each other’s possibilities.
