Celebrating who you are was something I didn’t give much thought to until I became a mom. In children, we see our hopes for the future and connect with our inner child. We want to give them a world where they see, know and embrace themselves– even if the world doesn’t always do the same. Writing and publishing children’s books is my way of contributing to a future where every child feels seen, valued and celebrated for who they are. By creating stories that highlight the Asian American experience, I’m filling a gap that I often noticed growing up. Introducing children to a variety of cultures and perspectives early on, we lay the groundwork for a more inclusive and compassionate society. In this way, children’s literature is a celebration of diversity and a testament to the importance of representation.
