take me as i am 2021

take me as i am is a poetry book that navigates the said reality that we have been facing this past year and currently are still processing. I also speak to the notions of what it specifically means to be an American and how we as Asian Americans (generalized umbrella term that describes so many vast unique cultures) are viewed in public and behind closed doors. The book contains three parts that delve into the beginning stages of shock, formulating thought, and what becomes of acknowledging your own reality as yours to claim. Throughout this book, there are topics of identity, immigration, and self identity through the backdrop of growing up or living in the U.S. and how that entails our own personal experiences as a whole.
