Hi there my fellow Hapas, I am Ali!
I guess the mere identification of being a Hapa sets people apart, in a good way of course! :)
I am proud of my genealogy and ethnicity because it is a large part of who I am and how my attitude and thinking differs from others.
The fact that I was born and have lived most of my life in south India takes people by surprise because I haven’t unfortunately inherited those south Indian features as my Indian ancestry originates from the north.
Next time I am asked to explain my different looks, I might as well just say that I am Hapa and a happy one at that! :)
