Relationship: Child of im/migrant

My object is a pair of chopsticks. It is a pair of plastic, bamboo, or metal sticks that Chinese and Japanese people eat with. It originates from China. The chopsticks I have are made of plastic. I eat with chopsticks every day. My chopsticks are important to me because I can’t eat certain foods without chopsticks. Here are four foods I can eat with chopsticks: noodles, rice, fish, and meat. My parents urge me and my brother Joseph to eat every meal with chopsticks to keep the tradition of eating with chopsticks in our family.
