A fun fact about me is … I'm an Iranian that can speak Mandarin but can't speak Farsi.
I racially identify as … mixed. I can’t quite identify as brown and I don’t identify as white, but I am proud to be mixed and that’s really important to me, even if I can’t put my racial identity simply.
When people ask me the question “what are you?” I usually say … I’m half Iranian, half white.
My favorite thing about being mixed is … Having ties to my Iranian heritage.
The most difficult thing about being mixed is … Not feeling stronger ties to my Iranian heritage.
If I could visit anywhere in the world, it would be … Right now it's a train ride of Copper Canyon in Northern Mexico.
If I had one day left on Earth, I would eat … 小笼包! Xiao long bao is a soup dumpling from Shanghai but the soup is inside the dumpling. They make me very happy.
