TeluGlobe welcomes Suguna Narayan, a second generation Telugu-speaking American to the contributors’ roster.
Suguna, about herself:
I am the daughter of first-generation Indian immigrants from Andhra Pradesh. I was born and brought up in the United States, but my parents were persistent in teaching me about Telugu culture during my childhood. When I was in kindergarten, I resisted speaking Telugu and am glad that my parents prevailed. I now consider myself fortunate to be able to take the best from both Indian culture and American culture. I am bilingual, and I feel a strong sense of pride in both my Indian heritage and my American upbringing. I am currently going to graduate school, and I hope to become a scientist.
