My mum’s Samoan and Dad’s Indian from Fiji but my dad left when I was about 9 years old so my Samoan culture is all I have known throughout my life even before my dad left I grew up around my mum’s family.
If you haven’t guessed but I’m really into my Samoan side and for those that don’t know, Samoans are Polynesians just like Hawaiians, Maoris and many more. Although it has taken me a long time but I have learned to accept my Indian side though I know nothing about that side of me.
I love being Hapa because I like to see people guess what culture I am. I’ve gotten everything from Maori, Cook Islander, Tahitian, Hawaiian, Spanish, Mexican, Brazillian and other Hispanic cultures. You be the judge.
I’m really glad that there are a whole lot of other Hapas out there that know what I’ve been through and I really hope that other people will come and share their stories as well.
