“Every time I say something bad about my family, it becomes more about where I come from than just regular stuff people go through with their parents.”
Though it was not there for shock value, the timing of it made it come across that way and, in my opinion, it was totally needless. It was not given adequate time and was rushed through, making it seem more like a convenient plot point for others' character development than a genuine tragedy.
"We must be the masters of our own destinies. I did not learn that until it was too late. You have to fight to take back control of your life. Sometimes you will hurt the ones you love the most. But in the end, it will always have to be your choice.”
You have no idea how hard it is to constantly feel like you have to represent your entire culture.
