As a Chinese-American being raised by her adoptive Latino family in Miami, she doesn't understand who she really is. Mariel feels connected to her Latino culture, but all of the other kids make fun of her. After a trip to China, where she was born, Mariel learns about her Chinese heritage. Seeing the orphanage and all the children who are still up for adoption allow Mariel to be happy with her life. She is finally able to accept who she really is - a "Florida chica China by the way of Fujian!"Also included are two other stories of heritage and diversity: "Amy's Metaphor" and "From Scratch". 1.

Latinos are already the largest minority group in the United States, and experts estimate that by 2050, one out of three Americans will identify as Latino. Though their population and influence are steadily rising, stereotypes and misconceptions about Latinos remain, from the assumption that they refuse to learn English to questions of just how "American" they actually are. By presenting thirteen riveting oral histories of young, first-generation college students, Mario T. Garcia counters those long-held stereotypes and expands our understanding of what he terms "the Latino Generation." By allowing these young people to share their stories and struggles, Garcia reveals that these students and children of immigrants will be critical players in the next chapter of our nation's history. Collected over several years, the testimonies follow the history of the speakers in thought-provoking ways, reminding us that members of the Latino Generation are not merely a demographic group but rather real individuals, as American in their aspirations and loyalty as the members of any other ethnic group in the country.The complete list of narrators includes: Mariana Carreno, Tony Chiroldes, Monica Steuer, Adriana Sananes, Walter Krochmal, Rosie Berrido, Silvia Sierra, Luis Moreno, Martin Untrojb, Maria Cabezas, Lisa Ortiz, and Blanca Vasquez. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Blanca Camacho, Mariana Carreno, Tony Chiroldes, Monica Steuer, Adriana Sananes, Walter Krochmal, Rosie Berrido, Silvia Sierra.
