"Studies have shown that Asian Americans are the least likely racial group in the U.S. to seek mental health services."
"I distanced myself from other Asians, thinking I had found the solution to all of my problems by aligning myself with white people."
"We are used to minimizing our own pain because we don’t want to rock the boat."
