Link:  THE CHO STORIES

"I am interested in examining Korean-American communities as well as countless immigrant communities grappling with unresolved feelings of displacement, anger, lost identity, and transgenerational and intergenerational trauma. Intergenerational or transgenerational trauma occurs when human beings cannot overcome what has been traumatically overwhelming, unbearable, and unthinkable. And very often, the processing moves to the next generation to reprocess." - Anna Sang Park
