Abstract

This study aimed to explore the lived bicultural experiences of second-generation Asian females living in the UK. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with four university students, lasting between sixty and ninety minutes. Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis of the interview data yielded four main themes, with an overarching pattern of difficult experiences arising from a lack of intersubjectivity between themselves and others. These themes were: an integrated, context-dependent identity; difficulty fitting in with different cultural groups; restrictions on independence; and negative impacts on family relationships. The findings of this research support previous literature, and have implications for overcoming the challenges faced by second-generation Asian women.
