The purpose of this project was to examine, in narrative form, the writer's experiences as a homosexual Cambodian-American. The narrative will explain how the author's struggle to form an identity within each community while dealing with prejudices from both helped strengthen his character and develop the skills he will use in his career as a social worker. The technique of narrative writing was evaluated through theory and the analysis of published narratives addressing the topic of coming out, as well as struggles with various other adversities. The author's experience developing his narrative and its implications on field of social work were also discussed.
