TEXTS FROM MY ASIAN MOTHER

  1. A FB message she sent to my sister after my breakup.
  2. Nutrition advice
  3. My biggest fan
  4. She does not know this is a 9/11 reference
  5. Helen is my sister
  6. "Seriously."
  7. Always looking out for me
  8. Boy advice
  9. "It is NOT a secret!!"
  10. Let me end this by saying my mother is one of the bravest people I know. Coming to a foreign country, for no other reason than to better your children's lives, is the most selfless & courageous thing a person can do. Her texts are ridiculous & her English is not perfect, but remember Amy Chua's words — a foreign accent is often a sound of bravery.
