My mom’s family is from Finland, and my father’s side is African American. I would love to find out what parts of Africa my dad’s family descended from.

I have siblings, and out of all of them I’m the only one who got freckles. I get asked a lot about what I’m mixed with, and I will usually tell people I’m a hybrid. After I have to explain that I’m part Black and Finnish.

It is great when people from different cultures fall in love. I’ve been to parts of the world where race is still somewhat of an issue. Growing up was a little tough because of culture clashes and there is that pressure of conforming to one. Having parents’ like mine, it was easy to get over differences and make friends with whoever needed a friend.
