Staying Afloat: How Children of Immigrants Are Helping Family Restaurants Weather the Pandemic

I’ve been working on this story for a month about 1st/2nd generation kids who’ve been helping immigrant parents keep family restaurants afloat during covid. As the child of an immigrant myself, this piece holds a really special place in my heart. Gratitude to Elaine Pang (New Star Seafood Restaurant), Carol Xie (Purple Dot Cafe), Michelle Can (Dim Sum King), Wilson Chan (T&T Seafood Restaurant), and Supo Techagumthorn (Chili Basil Thai Restaurant) for sharing their pandemic journeys with me. An inspiration!
