My name’s Olivia and I’m half Polish (mum’s side) and half Vietnamese (dad’s side). I was born in Poland and I’m living in the UK now.
I’m very open about my ethnicity and I feel honored to be mixed race. I never really talked about where I came from when I was younger but now I feel more open about it and cherish it more. However, I cannot speak fluent Vietnamese.
The main features of being mixed race are mostly the different cultures that are included in your life, like Christmas with my mum and Vietnamese New Year with my dad — two very different things yet we celebrate both.
I hope one day I will meet more people like me.
P.S. I love Vietnamese cuisine!
