Our Story

Our story begins in the summer of 2020.​


My family was celebrating Duan Wu Jie, the Dragon Boat Festival. My mom had set up a station for us to make ZongZi, which is a traditional Chinese sticky rice dumpling. My then 18-month-old daughter, Ava, watched curiously as my mom filled the bamboo leaves and twisted them into a triangular shape.  As I was taking in this wonderful moment, I was hit with a startling realization: “Would I be able to teach the future generations these same traditions?” ​

Passing down our heritage is very important to me, yet I found limited resources for parents like me. This inspired me to start Culture Tatertots on Instagram in hopes to help educate other parents on Chinese culture and traditions. Eventually it led to publishing a children's book, "A Monster Named Nian" and creating kids activity kits that educate kids about culture through play.
