I got published in a BIG local newspaper again :). At least this is some happy news in my life. Oh and my poem is #2 on the "Most Popular" list for about 2 months now...I think xD. I wrote this article a long time ago, probably in june. That's also about 2 months ago xD.
My voice article:
When Asians Are Pushed to the Breaking Point
By Annie Shum
Growing up in an Asian household isn’t easy. We’re constantly examined under a microscope by society, which has formed this perception of us as humans with big brains, lack of athleticism, and very bad English. I’ll admit that we score high on our SATs and ACTs, but are we really smart? I laugh at the very idea of scientists examining our brains and concluding that we’re intelligent in technical analysis. That is not the secret of our achievements. As Colin Powell once said, “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”
I'm so sick of people judging me just because i'm Asian. I'm really sick of seeing comments like "yellow scum", "You murdering chinese". People, there's always two side to every story. We don't know the full story of the situation in Tibet. Just because you say those things that we are like "animals" or "people who have no morals", what does that make you for saying those things? You're judgemental and someone of lesser morality. It really is hypocrisy at work.
**Also a little note, I was waiting outside for 30 minutes waiting to be let in so I can retake my Chemistry regents. As i'm standing there, I have people staring at me like "What the heck is she doing here? She's Asian". I wanted to say to them, I"M NOT STUPID OR RETARDED LIKE THEM(PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY FAILED THE TEST). I just wanted to retake it to get a better grade and if I did fail it, why would it be a suprise that an "Asian" failed at something? We all have those times where we do well below our standards. Those are the times that motivate us to "perfection".
This is me signing off now.....
Video info: My 1st "Heroes" video. I made this in only 1 hour, so it's kinda suck-ish. Basically it is about how everyone in Elle's life manipulates her. Peter stole Elle's heart, her father controlls her life, but Elle always has her powers to remain above them.
ehh...hope you enjoy it anyway. It's suck-ish

*Author Notes: My newest update in a seemingly long time. Sorry to keep you waiting! My computer finally broke and I was without a computer for practically a whole week and now I have a new computer. Yay!! Won’t be writing another one for a long time since school is about to begin soon. I was very discouraged from writing because I lost everything I’ve written in this scene, so I had to write as much as I can remember. It’s not that funny like I would have wanted it to be. You only get the muse once and then it goes away.
