The first part of the paper requires you to identify information from your own personal history. Use the following questions to help guide your reflections:
1) Identify your personal biases and how they may impact your counseling approach. Remember, everyone has biases. The point is not to project them onto your clients.
Note: It is preferred you discuss your cultural biases.
2) Describe your personal history by documenting experiences with discrimination you may have experienced and how your cultural background impacted these experiences. If you have not had any experiences, share why you believe this to be true.
3) Identify memories of contact with those who were culturally different than you, and your experiences associated with these differences. Be specific.
4) How has your life experience affected how you may relate to persons different than you? Be specific.

Thien*, a different Vietnamese student, eventually joined my class. Thien struggled to fit in at school and had trouble communicating in English. He had trouble with his academics and had trouble making friends. My teachers urged me to assist him because they didn’t know how to (Hua, 2019). They believed that if I interacted with him, assisted him with his studies, and developed a friendship with him, his condition would get better. Although my efforts got off to a decent start, sadly, things only got worse. I think Thien felt the same way about me because I hated him. I realize how unjust this was for us both in retrospect.
