Immigrant youth navigate a number of environments. Oftentimes these young people find themselves in between two spaces: one environment where they have to act a specific way in order to fit in with their peers and another environment where they can truly be themselves because there is a shared sense of culture with their peers. The following essay provides a glimpse into the life of one young person as she navigates what she refers to as a “split reality.” Highlighting experiences around use of language and religion, this essay provides insightful perspectives for youth development practitioners.
