“Hey man so are you Asian or White?” is the first thing many people say to me before even meeting me.

My mom is Japanese and my dad is White. I grew up being knowledgeable about  my Japanese culture, but my family was very Americanized.

I’ve always identified as both Asian and White, so I never had a problem with letting anyone know who or what I am. Hapa pride!
