My Daughter Teaches English

Relationship: Child of im/migrant
My daughter, Allyn Wong
My daughter, Allyn Wong

 My name is Steve Wong. Even though I have a Chinese name, I know very little about China. I was born in the United States and have never been to China. I have always lived in South Carolina. My father was from China, and my mother was from Pineville, NC. I often tell people, being Chinese in the South is like being the only egg roll among the corndogs. I chose this photo of my daughter Allyn to tell my story because she is creating a living link between China and the United States, something I was never able to do. She has traveled to and lived in Asia. Now she teaches English to people in New York, people from all around the world. I am very proud of Allyn. She is doing something very important, making the world a better place for many people. 

Place(s): China, South Carolina, United States
