This is me...


"What am I", eh? I am a fusion of several
ethnicities. I'm tired of only being able
to check off one box during tests. I am
proud to be able to represent so many
different people. I am a 三せい. I hate it
when people try to put people in groups
by ethnicity. It enforces that we're different,
but we are amazingly all the same... in our
own way. ~ Carin ~ カリン・キムラ

1/2 Japanese

I don't pay attention to what mean
people say. You're awesome cause you're hapa!
