Two years ago, Kenny came to North Carolina and had the opportunity to meet him in person and wrote this article. The two second-generation young people answering questions on the stage, the host has graduated from high school and became an undergraduate student at Princeton, and Kenny, who was interviewed, is running for Congress to represent a North Carolina constituency. They are both examples of successful family education. excellent !
Thanks to such family training, the traditional virtues of the Chinese nation have been passed down, and in the free and open social environment of the United States, it has become a classic that combines Chinese and Western cultures. This is the best immigrant story and a classic interpretation of the American dream.
Thank Kenny for being our voice. Kenny’s growth and success have inspired many families, especially Asian American families, to better appreciate our cultural heritage and love this country even more!
The audience immediately noticed one detail. He was unscripted throughout the speech and his speech was very logical and organized. This should be attributed to his professional training. Kenny graduated from Davidson College, a well-known liberal arts college in North Carolina, with an undergraduate major in mathematics and a minor in philosophy. He was also a devout Christian who visited many churches in Charlotte, convinced that God had a special mission for this country and for all immigrants.
Kenny started by talking about his family’s immigration experience and introduced the struggle of Asian Americans in this land of opportunity. This is the American dream that many Chinese people are familiar with. It started with the parents of the first generation of Chinese students when they were students in the work-study program.
Kenny was born in Virginia and raised in Richmond. He introduced that his father was studying for a doctorate in economics, and his mother briefly worked in a restaurant to pay for her CPA studies. He introduced this common pattern of Asian immigrant families to everyone present, that is , they have been exposed to the optimism and hard work of their parents since childhood, and watched their own families come to the United States from nothing to work hard through their parents’ diligence. to the middle class, and then to the upper middle class economic class. Among them, he focused on how his father overcame the language barrier, gradually improved his English skills, and expanded his academic and career development space, from being an ordinary employee in a bank to starting his own company.
This attitude of understanding and gratitude for the experiences of their parents’ generation is obviously different from that of some Asian young people. Kenny does not take the suffering and efforts of his parents for granted. Instead, he understands the hardships of the immigrant community and the sacrifices they make for their families and future, so he is particularly interested in the results that people obtain due to their hard work. Young people like Kenny are able to understand the sacrifices of the previous generation without feeling self-hateful and self-contemptuous. This is due to the Asian tradition of emphasizing family values. I guess Kenny’s parents also handle the relationship with their children properly and raise the next generation in a sunny way. There is no negative phenomenon of repaying kindness with vengeance.
