This workbook asks readers to reflect on their own narratives and thoughts or beliefs surrounding specific areas in their lives that they struggle with. It also seeks to promote cross generation communication and understanding among immigrant communities and seeks to empower members of the immigrant communities to push beyond personal, cultural, and societal barriers that seek to inhibit them from living their best lives. In many immigrant communities, communication gaps occur as younger generations quickly acculturate to the culture of their host society, while the first generation- also considered the older generation, continues to cling onto their traditional culture. We hope through reflection on one’s own perceptions as well as on the perceptions of other individuals in our lives, readers will begin to develop compassion and understanding for every member of their community. We also hope that through this reflection, readers will develop self-awareness of their own desires and goals, and gain the courage and authenticity to pursue their goals and dreams in light of the many challenges (tigers) that may lie in their paths.
