Stories: Roland Jeon -- Living in America: Growing Up Korean-American

This week, WPSU has presented a series of essays from Town & Gown magazine's first-ever Youth Issue. The essays were written by students at State College Area High School, and they chose issues close to their hearts. In this essay, we hear from senior Roland Jeon. Roland is concertmaster of the school orchestra and editor-in-chief of the Lion's Digest newspaper. He reflects on what it's like to be a first-generation American. Sharon Stringer assisted in producing this series. Sharon is a summer news fellow at WPSU and joins us through the Educator in the Newsroom program of the Radio and Television News Director Foundation.
