The most difficult thing I have overcame was bullying when I was younger. It started in kindergarten, I was teased and ridiculed just because I was different from all of the other kids. I am born in America, pure Chinese blood and I am proud of my background. Never will I ever be ashamed of that. The kids teased me about what they saw on the outside, a tall, lanky, smalleyed, yellow, Chinese girl with a speech problem. Of course I had been given many nicknames “Jackie” was the most popular, “Chink” I need not to say more about that, and
“London Tipton” because she is known to be dumb and Asian. I didn’t fit into the stereotype of
“All asians are smart, or great at math.” Mathematics has always been my weakest subject and iI had tutoring at Kumon for about 6 months.
Speech was difficult for me to deal with, i’m still not sure what kind of problem that was, but i was made fun of because of that. I didn’t have an accent, (which I am happy about) I attended speech class everyday to get better so i would not get teased. But of course, I still did.
After about 1 year i had improved…
