It’s a mixed bag with Asians who believe me when I say I am Japanese (1/4). Many actually think I am half, because I look a lot like Becky, a hafu singer from Japan. I think I look Japanese.
My mother is a Japanese-Jew! I like being different, and I love being a Japanese Jew because I am truly super-unique just like my personality. I’ve been labeled “weird” all my life, and I think it comes from my unique ethnic background.
I must say when I dated a hafu who was deeply disturbed and confused with his identity, and it impacted everyone as a result, it made me even more proud of my ethnicity because accepting yourself is the number one way to always be happy.
