Culture Clash - 972 words
"Culture Clash" I am a born Vietnamese, and Chinese American. For more than a decade I have made many friends coming from diverse cultures.

From this experience with my friend, Hong, I realized that families who had a strong cultural, and language practice at home had a very stable and functional family.
