You are allowed to mix apples and pears here (2020)

When crossing borders, do you think about what you will become?

Despite living on the other side of the world for over 30 years, my parents still call Vietnam their home. Their migration to Slovakia has turned both of my parents into foreigners of their own. Their identity resembles a vast landscape of collected diversities. At some point, every single memory or thought that felt new, gradually became familiar. You exist in a place with a hint of your past where you blend in with the present. And to blend in means becoming a person within a person, a piece of one world within another.
