MELISSA FULLER, MUSIC TEACHER AT NORTH BEND ELEMENTARY
Filipino and Filipino-Americans have a unique cultural history. My mother grew up in the rich cultural space that was informed by that history. Because of her, I experienced my Filipino heritage mixed with growing up in the United States, making it easy for me to not feel Filipino enough or American enough. I found happiness in my Filipino culture when I got to eat my mom’s cooking, attend parties with all of my mom’s friends and their kids. I even think fondly when my friends and I would hide when our parents called for us to sing Karaoke in Tagalog.
As an adult I have found love and joy in being Filipino-American and spreading that knowledge and beauty of my culture to others. One of my absolute favorite ways to do that is by teaching my friends how to cook, and of course eat, Filipino food. I also find joy in sharing my culture with my music students through the folk music and dances like the tinikling.
Filipinos are so incredibly hard working and have so much heart and passion. I am so grateful that my mother made sure I was able to grow up connected to that passionate tradition in some way. The sacrifices that my grandfather made as a sugarcane plantation farmer sending money back home to the Philippines, and my mother, leaving the Philippines to be in the US Air Force, have provided me and my cousins with a prosperous life. My pride of being
Filipino-American comes from my mom, my culture, and my life experience. This pride is what gives me joy to celebrate what makes others unique.
