I am hapa! And proud of it! I love it and everybody loves it too!! All my friends want hapa kids, cause we are all just so cute! The best part of being hapa is the fact that I fit in everywhere... if it's the Japanese kids, hey I'm Japanese! The white kids? Same thing, I'm white too! The mixed kids? Hey me too! But I always become friends with other hapas cause we have a connection! Okay that's what I am!

Japanese, English, Irish, Norweigan, German, Dutch, etc.
