hapa357My name is Sean and I am Japanese and German on my mother’s side; Irish, Dutch, and British on my father’s.

I’m proud to be Hapa because I got to experience two completely different cultures along with fluency in English and Japanese. I was born in Tokyo, Japan and I now live in McDonough, Georgia.

I feel like I’ve embraced my heritage even more so than Asian-Americans today. Language usually gets lost on the second generation, so I try my best to stay current with Japanese college-level vocabulary and pop culture.

It’s a touchy subject to talk about challenges that I’ve faced. I was bullied as a kid, and rejected by both cultures because I cannot fully identify with any ethnic group.

I celebrate New Year’s, Children’s Day, Respect for the Aged Day, and Cherry Blossom Festival.
