As an American born Indian, I have always felt a sense of marginalization in my community. My parents immigrated from India to the United States when I was a child; growing up, I often felt like I didn’t fully belong in either culture. I struggled to find my place in a world where I was seen as “not quite Indian enough” by some members of my cultural community, and “too Indian” by others. This feeling of not fitting in was compounded by experiences of discrimination and racism that I faced growing up, including being bullied for the food that I would bring to school lunch. I remember kids making fun of the smell and appearance of the food that my mother would pack, making me feel ashamed of my cultural heritage. I often felt like I had to choose between embracing my cultural heritage and fitting in with my peers, this was a difficult and isolating experience.
As I grew older, I found confidence in my identity and a supportive community of individuals who shared similar experiences. Today, I am proud to be myself and I embrace my dual cultural identity. I am grateful for the experiences and struggles that have shaped me and made me the person I am today. I am committed to continuing my work to create a more inclusive and equitable society for all South Asian Americans, and to inspire others to embrace and celebrate their cultural heritage. I believe that it is important for everyone to have a sense of belonging and connection to their cultural roots, and I am dedicated to creating spaces where people can share their experiences, stories, and traditions. I believe that by doing so, we can build a more vibrant and diverse community, where everyone is valued and celebrated for who they are.
