  • #myLAcommute I miss shrimp dumplings

    1 week ago

    PAMQUYNG LEE

    I mentor kids from first to fifth grade. They’re nice kids, good listeners. I study comparative literature at USC. I read when I’m on the bus. After I graduate next year, I want to go to law school. I don’t know if I’ll stay in L.A. I want to apply to schools all over the country.

    I’m originally from China. I moved here three years ago. What do I miss most about home? I miss shrimp dumplings.
