As a Korean and Chinese American, I have experienced a variety of cultures and values within my own background and here where I grew up. As I studied in nutrition and dietetics at New York University (a hubbub of cultures), I learned so much more about other cultures and health disparities. Although we are often taught in school the value of cultural competence, I hold this as a priority for myself as well. Experiencing all kinds of discrimination pushes me to stand up for what’s right in my work and my personal life. Even now more than ever, I find it crucial to continue to learn and educate others on the struggles of POC related to health and history. Our healthcare system is not perfect and can always improve in this regard and I will 100% be a part of that change towards equality.
