Rereading Chin's "How I got that name" instills a belief in me that the author holds some anger in her plight as an immigrant and to some extent is lashing out at parents, the system and society in general.
To me, "How I Got That Name" and the content of the poem do not "jive" well. She seems to be very unhappy and very ambivalent. Although her images and details are powerful and interesting, the poem content and the title do not tie together well.
Did you complete the workshop? I am unsure of what is required to complete the workshop.
