I was born and I grew up in Kokkola in Finland with my Mum and Dad and 5 other brothers and sisters for about 5 years. During pre-school there I was teased quite a lot about my Japanese heritage. But I eventually found friends but still no one could reason with me being also half Finnish :P
Though we went back to Japan, I was worrying what people would think of me being half Finnish, though no-one found out thank god :)
My ethnicity of race really only points out Japanese but if your hear my voice I have a European accent to it slightly. And I have been commented if I’m half Swedish more than once because of that :P
I currently speak Finnish well and I have been involved in ceremonies here for Finnish communitiess that I would love to get involved in more. And I plan on going back there because I now know the language well and to let people know I am of your beautiful culture that I love!
