Amazing girl. Happy ending. Props. Still, this story bothers me. It bothers me because I know that this is only one case, that this sort of thing happens to people of color all the time. She was lucky that her story happened to go viral and she happened to get help, but there are so many other cases that do not happen to capture the attention of the public and the media. Part of the appeal of the Diane Tran story is how neatly the story fit into the Asian American model minority stereotype. If she had been a different ethnic minority or a teen mother or an average student, would she have gotten a second glance?
