Hi My name is Monica Pearce, I’m currently a student at UCSD.

I’ve recently won the Clinique Fresh Face contest and got to experience a lot of new things and meet a lot of new people.

The first thing everyone would always ask me is what my race was. It made me really proud to say both Asian and White.

Where I’m from Hapa people are common but when I traveled to New York or other towns it would not be as common and I would be the first Asian/White combo someone ever met!

I want to spread the Hapa voice all around the world because the being multicultural is truly empowering.

  1. I always find it weird when people say they’ve never met a hapa. I’m like, come to Southern California, there are tons here!
