This story made me uncomfortable and I’m okay with that. I am American but faced certain biases based on my race early in my life. I cannot do anything about that. Luckily, there were devices, such as my learning, my determination, and so importantly, those who showed me kindness, to help me along the way.

Here’s hoping you find such a community here and anywhere you find yourself. It’s a joy to read your story.
