2.       Who are the subject(s) of the narratives in the Dien article? Provide details about their gender, age, nationality, and personal and professional status. Briefly, what is their history of migration or immigration?

3.       What themes or categories do the subjects in the Dien article use to organize their own narratives about who they are? Please list clearly, and summarize why Dien thinks they use those themes/categories.
