How My Family Ended Up in Texas

Literary / News
A magazine open to a spread. There is an illustration of a man behind a counter and the text reads, "Counter Revolution. My grandparents from China risked everything to start a humble grocery store in an unlikely place and changed by family forever."

If you fly Southwest Airlines, check out the April issue of their magazine. I have an essay about my grandparents’ grocery store. It’s also the story of my family’s journey from a rural village in Southern China to El Paso, Texas.  (I would like to take a moment to say: Yay print magazines!)
