A Transformation: Raymond M. Wong immigrated to the U.S. at the age of five and disowned his language and culture. At the same time, he pushed away his family. He was an outsider in every sense of the word. At the age of thirty-three, he returned to Hong Kong for the first time and encountered a father and family he didn’t know. He came face to face with the people and culture he had spent his life running from. His memoir, I'm Not Chinese: The Journey from Resentment to Reverence, is about a trip that transformed his life.
