      Just as an Chinese woman and a foreigner in the U.S., and the girl who has been told a million times: just marry someone so that you can get your green card, and never knew how to respond or deal with my emotions inside, this is the tote bag I want to take everyday, on subway, on the streets, in my office and with anyone.
