UCA Event Recap: “A Dialogue: Cultural Identity & Its Puzzles in Chinese American Youth” WAVES Webinar

The UCA WAVES Youth Mental Health Collaborative Program held the virtual event, “A Dialogue: Cultural Identity & Its Puzzles in Chinese American Youth,” at no cost to attendees on September 26, 2021. The webinar is the first of the program’s fall “mini-webinar” series. 

The panel speakers included Advisor to the Asian American Association and former Associate Director of Campus Ministry at the University of Notre Dame Priscilla Wong, M.S. Ed., UCA Board Member and Calvin J. Li Memorial Foundation Founder Paul Li, Ph.D., and UCA WAVES Youth Ambassador Jessie Li. UCA WAVES Youth Ambassador Tianyao Tim He moderated the discussion, and UCA WAVES Webinar Co-Coordinator Sharon Shi helped by hosting.   

Speakers discussed how culture and identity are different for each person based on their own backgrounds and how they see themselves. Panelists said parents can help their children solve the puzzle of “culture and identity” and other topics by accepting their children, not minimizing their child’s feelings, and growing on the topic in our contemporary world themselves. 

Over 130 people attended.
