Sha’Myra Stevenson6th Period- English lllThe passage “Growing up Asian in America” by Kesaya Noda is about her overall attitude about her identity and acceptance. In the passage, the author uses the characteristics that Noda claims to be her identity to explain the way she felt towards her identity and how she accepted it. In the passage, “Growing up Asian in America,” the author uses characteristics to explain Noda’s feelings about her identity and the way she accepts everything about it. To begin with, Noda has three classifications of her identity. For example, in lines 12-14, Noda reveals the three classifications of her identity. “I was sometimes addressed or referred to as racially Japanese, sometimes as Japanese American, and sometimes as an Asian woman.” This shows that, Noda was looked at differently by many people. Others didn’t clearly understand Noda’s identity. To sum it up, Noda was judged based off of her misleading looks.
