Every day is my birthday. I tell anyone who asks. Because, in fact, I don’t know the date I was born, only the year. I realized shortly after coming to the U.S. that, since people were nice to you on your birthday, I could say that every day was my birthday and people would always be nice to me.

They’re not always as nice when they learn I am a former refugee and immigrant, even though I’ve been a U.S. citizen for nine years, and my resettlement was authorized by an act of Congress.
