I LIED TO MY MOM.
Can you see the person?
Or do you see “mom”?
Growing up with parents that have a deep roots in eastern culture, there is a model minority mentality that is engrained into our mother’s minds. Facing systematic oppression from our society and from our culture the need to lie in order to seek approval is ever existent.
