An Asian Indian Student's Identity: Living in Two Worlds
Mittapalli, Kavita
Qualitative Report, v14 n3 p466-477 Sep 2009
Using narrative inquiry, I tell the story of an Asian Indian student attending a large mid-Atlantic university who approached me in the summer of 2002 for my master's thesis interview. She was an Indian by birth who was adopted by White parents when she was an infant. She had not been to India since. Her story provided me with rich insights into her life including her childhood, identity formation, relationships with her adoptive parents and siblings, and social interactions outside home while attending school. I came to understand issues of meaning-making of her life and sub-culture through her story. I use narrative inquiry as a way to represent her story. (Contains 1 footnote.)
