At this point I do not know much about Vietnam. I was born in America, but my family is from Vietnam. I know there are Vietnamese holidays and ceremonies, but most of the time I do not know what they are for. I just attend them and enjoy my time with my family and friends. At this point, the most I know about my Vietnamese culture is the food. Other than that, everything is a blur because as time goes on my whole family is adapting more and more to the American culture.

I want to learn about the history of my parents’ move to America. I want to learn about the culture back when they were in Vietnam. I want to know why we celebrate these holidays and why these ceremonies are being placed. I want to get back to my Vietnamese culture because this is the right time to learn about my background. I probably won’t have a chance to do this research and learn about my parents in the future. To sum it up, I want to know more about Vietnam and my Vietnamese background.

The origin of my research sparked when I thought about who I really am. What defines me in a cultural way? All I could think of was being born in America and doing American things, while being lost and having no knowledge of my Vietnamese background. As of right now, I feel that this is the best and most interesting research I want to do.
