Dancing, Girls, and Nae Nae: u/caterpillarcraig 4h Men, how have you made a girl cr 435 511 Share BEST COMMENTS bivukaz 2h I work with kids in an elementary school One day I was standing in front of the lunch room, and I had to make the kids form a queue in order to enter the lunch room. In order to prevent the kids from rushing inside all at once, i usually play games with them to make them wait. Things like rock paper scissors, and other silly games. That day I was acting like I was the bouncer of this very exclusive nightclub called: "The Lunch Room" and I asked each kid to bust a dance move for me in order to get in. Obviously, everyone could enter but they had to shake their body a little bit. All the kids were plaving along, making fortnite dances, and other popular moves like the dab, the nae nae, etc etc etc...the most shy boys could do the robot, and the most shy girls could take my hand and i would make them spin like ballet dancers. At one point it was the turn of this shy girl, who slowly walked toward me, looked at me in the eyes... Then cried She was absolutely terrified of doing this in front of the other kids and just cried. I tried to confort her a little, so I picked her up in my arms, and took her hand like we were dancing a waltz, then spinned our way into the lunchroom Later that day she came to see me and asking me to dance with her again. I sure did. I taught her how to dance the waltz (the 3 step thing) and she had a blast.

You are so excited to see your pops in school He's your hero. But apparently other kids don't think he's so cool. They laugh at him and mimic his accent You don't want to be Chinese anymore Kimberly Yam@kimmythepooh 1d v You're 9 years olod You attend ballet camp. Someone tells you that another girl *hates* you. She thinks your eyes are an "ugly shape." You don't have the vocabulary to describe why that's hurtful. But now, you hate your distinctly Asian face. You do n't want to be Chinese anymore 80 t2,668 37.2K Kimberly Yam @kimmythepooh 1d v You're 16 years old It's Halloween & 2 students come to class dressed as "Asian tourists." They've taped their eyes back, strapped cameras around their necks and chucked up peace signs. You feel uncomfortable. When a teacher asks if you find the costumes offensive, you say no 979 2,521 35.6KT Kimberly Yam @kimmythepooh 1d You don't want people thinking you're uptight. You laugh along with everyone else. You don't want to be Chinese anymore You're 17 years old You're off to college & you meet other Asians. They have pride that you never had. You meet a boy & he wonders why you don't speak your family's tongue. Why your favorite food is grilled cheese, not xiao long bao. You say your family doesn't live that way. Kimberly Yam @kimmythepooh 1d But you know you rejected your culture a long time ago. You know you refused to speak Chinese & you remember calling your mother's food "disgusting." It's fucked. It clicks. It's a race to reclaim everything you've hated about yourself. For the 1st time, you want to be Chinese. 52 2,733 42.2K Kimberly Yam @kimmythepooh 1d v You're 20 years old You've spent the past several years repatriating yourself. You get your family's name inked into your skin. That character is there forever. You won't let anyone make you feel the way you did all those years ago. You love being Chinese Kimberly Yam@kimmythepooh .1d You're 25 years old You see a movie with an all-asian cast at a screening and for some reason you're crying and you can't stop.
