Jocelyn Fong and This I Believe

essayist Jocelyn FongEach week, we’ll hear a new This I Believe essay - this time from Jocelyn Fong. Many people have a favorite Thanksgiving dish like turkey or pumpkin pie, but for Fong, it’s something that combines American tradition with her father’s Chinese heritage.  Fong believes her holiday staple of steamed white rice topped with gravy helps connect her to her mix of cultures. Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, Jocelyn Fong graduated from Goshen College in 2007 with a degree in peace, justice and conflict studies. She now works as an editor for Media Matters, a nonprofit media watchdog organization in Washington, DC.
