I have learned a great deal about myself from these two experiences. Not only am I from Nepal but I am also from America. Being in Japan has made me embrace my Nepalese culture more but I also appreciate being from America. My identity as an Asian American remains and I have learned not to be scared of who I am. I have values and ideas that are rooted in both cultures. I am not going to lie and say that sometimes I didn’t get confused, I did and I still do but these things are bound to happen. I just know that I am proud to be me, no matter what color I am, no matter my sexuality or gender, I am lucky enough to have lived in two places and I am not ashamed of my identity.
