China Girl Holly: From a Chinese Orphanage to Surviving Racism in America

Editor’s Note: The following piece was chosen as a finalist in NextShark’s personal Essay Contest 2019. The views expressed in story are the writer’s own.

When I was an infant, I was left outside of an orphanage in a cardboard box, with no indicators of who left me there or who I was. At six months old, I was adopted by an American family, and from there on I moved happily to North Carolina as if my life weren’t about to change forever.
