Arang: Different. Don’t Be Afraid.

May 30, 2023

Arang Cistulli came to the US from South Korea as a very young child with her family.

She grew up in a small Ohio town where her father was a medical doctor.

Her story is bookended by prejudice she experienced as a child and by recent hate directed at Asian-Americans.

Don’t miss her lessons about dealing with hate and prejudice.

The story of Arang’s parents, “Physician and Family,” is in Immigrant Stories from the When I Got Here Podcast and Literacy Achieves.
