Hi! My name is Annabelle Linh Behrmann. My mom is Vietnamese and my dad is German. I can’t believe that there are so many other Hapas out there!
At a young age, I already loved and embraced my multiracial culture. Some people say I look more Asian, and some people say I look mixed.
In Vietnam, where I was born and raised (for about 6 years), they’re not sure if they should speak English or Vietnamese to me whenever I’m out at the mall or anywhere. They say I don’t look Vietnamese.
Now I’m living in the States, and of course some people here aren’t sure about what I am either haha! I have a couple of Asian friends, and when I told them I’m Vietnamese, they were like “WHAT?? Are you kidding me?” Then I told them I’m half German as well and they were all like “OHHHH!! I see what you mean!” Haha! Those were some incidents I had in the past.
I have a little sister, she’s only four, she’s my half sister. My mom remarried a Vietnamese guy, so my half sister is full Vietnamese. I love her to death. I love my stepdad too, he’s super nice to me. I visit my biological dad for Christmas and summers in Germany, but that’s the only precious time we can spend together. I’m always excited to see my dad, my grandparents, and my cousins.
Nice!! I’m half Swiss half Filipino. So you speak any German?
