When you're from an immigrant family, sometimes the best way to find yourself reflected in media is reading a poignant line from literature. Fox Searchlight Like: "For being a foreigner Ashima is beginning to realize, is a sort of lifelong pregnancy -- a perpetual wait, a constant burden, a continuous feeling out of sorts." Houghton Mifflin From Jhumpa Lahiri's The Namesake. Or: "First generation kids, I’ve always thought, are the personification of déjà vu.” Jenny Chang / BuzzFeed From this essay by Durga Chew-Bose. Or maybe something like "I didn't know I was even supposed to HAVE issues until I came to America." Alfred A. Knopf From Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's Americanah.
