Why I’m adopting a new name
Lily Chen

Dear Lily: Your article brings up a lot for me (and I’m sure others) regarding name changes, a person who decides to change his/her name, the reasons, etc. One’s birth name and/or adopted name ties into so much, such as culture, identity, etc. I look forward to your future articles as you grow with your new name. And I applaud your bravery in making this life choice and wish you continued success. — Shakurra
