Yo I’m At and my dad is Japanese and my mom is German & Italian.

Growing up, I always felt awkward because being in an all white elementary school I stood out as “the Asian kid.”

Due to this, I wasn’t always proud of being Hapa. However, as I got older and began to embrace all parts of my heritage, I have become super proud of being Hapa, and I believe that is part of what makes me so unique!

I love being Hapa and being mistaken for Filipino, Mongolian, or Latino then revealing my actual race. It keeps things interesting.
