Hi! I’m an American of Irish, German, Scottish, and Korean descent.
My dad’s an American of Irish, German, and Scottish descent. My mom’s Korean. My race? I’m Eurasian. Many people think I’m 100% European, but no, I tell them that I’m Eurasian.I was born in Korea, but I’m a proud American with four ethnic backgrounds. I embrace all of them. That’s what being American is all about. Being mixed.
I’m currently going to an International IB school in Korea, and I’m enjoying it a lot. I’m meeting fellow American kids, but I’m also meeting Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Nepalese, Taiwanese, Filipino, Canadian, and British kids.
I enjoy talking with them and love sharing my American culture with them. As I said before, many kids at school think that I’m 100% European, but when I tell them that I’m Eurasian, they are blown away. I’ve noticed that looks can be deceiving, especially with Eurasians.
I had my identity crisis two years ago. It all started when a Korean girl called me “halfie.” I immediately knew she was talking about my race, and I started feeling confused. Am I European, or am I Asian? After doing some research and deciding that I’m mixed race — Eurasian — my crisis ended. Identity confirmed. By the way, being a Eurasian guy somehow attracts me to Eurasian girls :)
I’ve always been interested in railroads and aviation, but my current dream is to become a pilot, travel the world, and meet other Hapas :)
