21Mil&Rising Season 4, Episode 1: Living with Generational Differences

Welcome to Season 4 Episode 1 of 21 Mil & Rising! In this episode, we will be talking about family and the cultural differences between 1st and 2nd generation Asians, whether that’s between us and our parents, or us and our relatives. Especially in the midst of the holiday season, we’re all made more aware of what family looks like. However, as Asian Americans, our family gatherings and family structure during the holiday season, as well as year-round, may look different from the traditional American family, which can shape our personal experiences regarding values and identity. While some of us have grandparents at home or live near other members of extended family, others of us have family that isn’t as accessible since they live back in our country of origin.
