crazy rich essays: a Chinese POV

dear asiennes,

we’re very fortunate enough to have writer Maggie Wang contribute her perspective in this month’s issue with her very personal essay (divided into two parts) regarding her Asian, American, Asian-American, and third culture kid experiences.

feel free to give it a read and comment on the respective pages with links below 🤓
