Lisa calls Connie by her two names and even goes ahead to tell her that she is aware of her specialization in playing the violin (Chang 233). These facts amaze Collie to an extent of embarrassing her because she feels guilty for not knowing a Chinese like her in a foreign land. Connie claims that she is not yet settled in America since she is only a month old. This has made her perceive the world around her as a tough one to understand and clearly visualize
