    The day was finally here. It was November 11, 1990, the day that our family was to go to ¡®Land Of Liberty.¡¯ I heard so many different things about this country called United States of America and I was warned that it would be nothing you¡¯ve expected.

Furthermore, it was difficult for me to see how much of this would come to any use-say the next time someone made a racist, homophobic, Western-centric, sexist comment at work, or at the Thanksgiving dinner table for that matter. How could I possibly communicate the things that had been discussed in the classroom, laced with words like paradigm, praxis, pedagogy, and a completely deconstructed concept of the word "culture"? All these things would

    “Kim, you have ten minutes to come downstairs! We will not be late for this dinner!” Trying to ignore her high-pitched voice, I make my way into my room. As I walk through the matte, mulberry-colored door, I see the hideous floral sundress that my mother has gently placed on my bed. What is the point of this stupid dinner? All I want is to be able to eat what I want, when I want. Why can’t she understand that? Dad would have understood. I just want to stay within my paisley walls, lights dimmed,
