Jade has her feet planted in two very different worlds with very different rules, cultures, and expectations. Her experience is similar to many other teens of immigrant parents I speak with. Regardless of their nationality, they grow up first generation in the United States but are sometimes seen as “different” by their classmates and their community. They switch from acting one way around family and church to a different way when at school or with friends. Sometimes they become confused as to who they are and how they want to be seen.
