Bao-Khanh Tran was born in Vietnam and came to America at a very young age. This made her question her true identity growing up because she was not sure whether she was Vietnamese or American. It was after an adventure with a group of loving family and friends that she became fully aware that she was not one or the other. Tran realizes that she is a Vietnamese-American. She wanted to share this discovery with her nieces and nephews who are growing up as a second generation Vietnamese-Americans themselves. It prompted her to write “Hatching Sharey” (published by Xlibris), a story about freeing oneself from the limitations of having a single identity.
The book tells the story of Sharey, a platypus in search for its identity in the wild. As she hatches into the wild with a duck-like bill, a mole-like claw and a beaver-like tail, Sharey learns that she is not exactly a duck, a mole, or a beaver, but a unique member of the animal kingdom and that is why she is so special.
“In today’s society, we often get caught up in putting labels on things; including ourselves,” Tran points out. “Some people get hung up with a single label, such as being a parent, a career person, a boy, or a girl that we forget to embrace our whole self. When we free ourselves from a single identity, we free ourselves from the limitations we perceive. We are more than just any one of those labels, because we are the perfect living creation of this universe.”
