Being Myself

Sun, 08/06/2017 - 13:58 -- jtn8345

Being myself is so hard sometimes.

I am a muslim woman.

I am also a vietnamese woman.

I am a bisexual Vietnamese muslim woman.

I am part of the first generation in my family born outside of Vietnam.

I was the first one in my immediate family to graduate from college.

I am the only one in my immediate family to pursue a master's degree.

I am the daughter of two refugees who have experienced tremendous trauma and suffer from PTSD.

I am a survivor of child abuse.

I am a survivor of assault.

I am healing.
