Hey I’m half Taiwanese and half White, my “whiteness” being Swedish.
There are other half and half kids that look full Asian or full Caucasian, but I think I’m a mix. In some of my pictures people tell me that I look “so Asian,” while in others, “you look so white.”
My family and I don’t really celebrate American holidays. We do celebrate Thanksgiving in a way, but we eat mainly Chinese food (the best food, in my opinion). We celebrate Chinese New Year by going to our local Chinatown. That’s always fun. I haven’t really struggled being Hapa; I like being different.
My Caucasian genes blessed me with double-lidded eyes, however, my Asian genes sometimes overpower the white genes and my double lids will go wacky. I don’t know if any other halfies have experienced this but it is ANNOYING!
Well anyways, being Hapa is special to me, because I only know probably about 2 Hapas and I like being different. Life is great.
