Talk Show Identity Statement

Khoi Monologue

When I came here as a young child, I always had a breathing living desire to become more "American," whatever that means. As I become older, I realized that there really wasn't a way to completely free my mind of a sorrowful Vietnamese past. When I had fully realized this, I not only began acting like myself but I started to preserve and improve the Vietnamese personality that haunted me in the past. I decided to embrace it, not push it away or dissolve it with some kind of Febreeze for personalities. Now, I have set up a reserve for my Vietnamese self like those that are set up to preserve Native Americans, and no longer do I fear to convey my true personality.
