CELEBRATING BLEND OF CULTURES

By Wini Lao

In this series I highlight my joy as a Chinese American growing up in America. Throughout childhood, I enjoyed being a child of an immigrant and exploring both cultures as “Chinese” and “American”. That’s ME! I am a blend of both worlds and I want to share that joy with others.

In "Celebrating Blend of Cultures", I juxtapose items that were familiar to my Chinese and American childhood. Buckle up! We’re going on a trip down nostalgia ‘90s with food, toys, and entertainment. It’s going to be a fun ride.
