IMG_5078-best-lightly-correctedI have been a full-time professional singer-songwriter for almost my entire life (since age 15). Having grown up in Bowie, md in an almost entirely white, middle class neighborhood, I had no chinese identity as my parents wanted their children to assimilate as was the norm back in the 1950s. But when i moved to san francisco to go to college i was amazed at the huge asian population there, and began to embrace my heritage whole-heartedly. now in addition to my music work i also teach about china in a workshop for elementary school-aged kids called “Let’s go to china!” I had to research my culture from scratch!
