I did not identify with or ‘fit in’ with the others on a cultural level which did alienate me in school.
Although, being from such a melting pot city, I did eventually manage to befriend many Hapas of many different backgrounds and quickly embraced my cultural heritage.
Growing up Hapa is simply amazing. The difference in customs, language and food have filled my life with diversity. I believe that with an exposure to this diversity, one can easily gain a sense of tolerance and understanding to our many differences and similarities as human beings.
Either way, world, watch out! One of these days, most of the place will be mixed.
