Did you ever get teased about where you came from? My name is Ankki Dong. I am unique because I am Chinese. That makes me unique because there are more than 800
students where I go to school and only three of the students are Chinese. Wow! That fact makes me feel different from my classmates. I speak differently from them and look different from them all too. However, I’m proud of who I am and that is what matters.
When I was in second grade and then again in third grade I was teased because I am from someone place else. I used to watch everyone hand out with each other which was hard. Luckily, now I have two very kind and pleasant friends named Yissely and Chastity. We always share everything with each other. They help me to feel like it is no big deal how other people sometimes treat me for being different.
Also, this year I can flaunt it because my neighbor just came from China and he doesn’t understand any English. This means I can help him and translate for him and help him get to know his classmates at school. This is how I flaunt myself.
