Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Life of a young Cambodian woman: Reconciliation with my past
by Ngo, Victoria Aleen, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 75; 1466342
Abstract (Summary)

This narrative seeks to reveal and unravel the story of a young Cambodian-American woman whose developmental experiences and sociocultural context placed her at the fragile position of being both “too Asian” and “not Asian enough” for society. In examining her life through the lenses of acculturation, intergenerational conflict, and identity development we piece together a deeper understanding of the experience of a 2nd-generation Cambodian-American woman.
