When people ask me, “What are you?” I usually say American. I identify with nationality first.

Through the years I’ve identified with being white as I was raised in a very homogeneous town in Connecticut. However, more and more I try to embrace all my heritages and believe that Hapa is not just another category, but a beautiful way to identify with other multiracial people.
