    For a long time, I was ashamed of my culture.

    I hated being Asian. I felt as if I was cursed with stereotypes that would follow me around from the day I was born til' my departure from this earth. I am constantly compared to other Asians and I was just longing so much to look like a Caucasian. My parents grew up in America...

    South Korea Has Seoul (∩ ▂ ∩)

    Asians represent! We have that SWAG (something we asians got) that no one else has. Not only are we stereotypically intelligent but what better jokes and stories about our culture and family no one else can understand. Here is to us

    I know. Having strict Asian parents often leads

    to socially awkward Asian kids, due to this "study 24/7 and have no fun or I'll beat you" attitude. And as I'm ashamed to say, I'm Asian with Asian parents. But this doesn't mean I have to be proud about my Asian heritage. I'm just an Asian, more like a banana.

    I'm pure Chinese, but I don't look it.

    People don't say what I look like though, because 70% of the population is Chinese. Oh, well.. I don't have the tiny Asian eyes stereotype, though, haha.
