- I have had such a hard time growing up in a Chinese family in Santiago. My parents don’t speak any Spanish, and I feel like I can’t identify with them or my extended family in China at all anymore. And I certainly don’t identify with the Chilean kids who make fun of my accent or the shape of my eyes at school. I am so tired of being a Third Culture Kid!
- I really need to lose some more weight – at least 10 more kilos by the end of this month, or I will never get selected as the next top model. All the other girls look so much slimmer, taller and more beautiful than me. I just wish I could have some pizza or a hamburger, but that kind of food is so full of calories that I’ll have to spend 20 hours in the gym. I am so tired of looking at my fat self in the mirror!
