#MyAAPIStory: "My family will use any occasion to celebrate and prepare food."

Mike describes his family's Thanksgiving traditions, a holiday they only started celebrating once they immigrated, but one that fit in to the Filipino customs of preparing and celebrating with food and family.

We created this interview for StoryCorps' and the White House's #myaapistory initiative, cataloguing everyday stories that reflect Asian-American and Pacific Islander heritage. You can find this and other interviews on Storycorps.me's website.
