Kerry Lin is a case study in how migration screws with traditional notions of "home" and identity. Born in France to an ethnic Chinese Cambodian and an Englishwoman, she doesn't claim to have "French blood," has almost no connection to Cambodia, and would never be accepted as Chinese. She tailors her response to the question "Where are you from?" to the person asking (she will tell a French person something different than a Chinese person, for example). Listening to Kerry talk about her journey, how it has shaped her, and what kind of a future she envisions for herself gives us a glimpse into how an ever-growing slice of humanity is thinking about themselves.
