This chapter begins by presenting a broader historical context of Filipino immigration to the United States; to California; and to the research site, San Diego. It then delineates the socioeconomic status of the Filipino CILS sample and the academic achievements and ambitions of young Filipinos. Next, the chapter analyzes what it means to grow up as children of Filipino immigrants in San Diego by focusing on shifts in ethnic identity and perceptions of discrimination, the quality of family relationships, and emotional well-being. It notes that race and gender mark most aspects of young Filipino lives and constitute crucial axes along which children of Filipino immigrants must be understood.
