Early every Sunday growing up in Australia, Anne Gu attended Chinese school, the weekend classes where many children of Chinese immigrants learn Mandarin. There, she bonded with her classmates over their shared sense of obligation. "We understood we had to be there because of our culture, our parents," Gu told us, "while our other friends were sleeping in." They kept in touch via group chat, exchanging jokes about life as first-generation Asian Australians. "Someone was like, it would be fun if we made a Facebook group, and we all agreed," Gu said.
