    He was born in Taiwan, but his parents immigrated to the U.S. when he was four and moved to Kentucky.  He took shit for being one of the very few Asian kids in school, and that was bad enough.  But he says he hated the pressure of being expected to be a superstar at math when math wasn't something he excelled at.

    No matter what people think, there are psychological costs to being thought of as the "model minority."
