    The story of growing up Asian in a white world really spoke to me. Here in my corner of rural America, we don’t see many people who aren’t white. I am always eager to meet people who are different than me and am curious about their personal stories but don’t always know how to ask without being rude or probing too hard. Lawrence Yeo’s story is both enlightening and incredibly sad. Thanks for sharing this as well as my own.
