Storytellers: Grace Lin

Author and illustrator Grace Lin says that writing stories helps you connect with who you are. Growing up, Grace didn’t feel connected to her roots, and she would sometimes even try to forget that she was Asian! Today, Grace realizes that being Asian is wonderful, and many of her stories are about Asian culture and traditions. Grace’s books are inspired by things that are important to her, just as your interests and experiences should shape the stories that you tell. “It’s really important to write and create your own stories,” Grace says, “because those are the ways that you’ll remember your life.” Watch the video, and learn more about Grace Lin on The Studio.
