When I was a young child my classmates teased me for having “chink eyes.” I would get so upset and just cry to my mother.
Even for a time I took up dying my hair blonde ( I still do) JUST to make others happy. Now I just do it because I think its cute!
When people ask me what I am and they hear Japanese and Vietnamese MOST of the reactions I get are “Do you like anime?” or ” Do you give manicures?” I have figured out just to laugh it off.
After going through some soul searching I am proud to say I am a Hapa! :D
