An important part of life is valuing yourself and knowing that you are exactly as you are. That is something that can either make or break you as a human being. Growing up, Dr. Marissa Pei was not proud of her Chinese roots. She was a Canadian-born Chinese in a predominantly German town in Kitchener, Canada. Being the only Chinese girl growing up in the school, she was made fun of a lot. In hindsight, Marissa is now grateful that she is Chinese. She says embracing your roots serves as a helping point for those who are not happy with all parts of them. She says her journey has been a wonderful one because it chiseled her into valuing all aspects of herself, which is a life journey for human beings on the whole. Marissa talks about her newly launched book, 8 Ways to Happiness from Wherever You Are, and gives her advice to Asian-American women who want to live life loud, to be heard, to be seen, and to be understood.
