Understanding My Roots

Ethnically, I’m from the Philippines. But if someone asked me any questions about my roots I would have very little to say.

I know very little about the history. I don’t know much of the culture. I can barely speak the language. I don’t even think I’ve read a book by a Filipino author before.

Yet, understanding my origins means to understand myself.

And that’s worth learning about.
