Not the same, also not different

Being an Asian American in the United States has created a dilemma. I find it hard to relate to being strictly American, but I also discover difficulties while trying to hold on to my Chinese roots. As a result of my race in this country, I feel a disconnection between being Chinese and American. The balancing act between the two is something that I have juggled with my entire life and I believe that I will continue to in the future.
