I identify as … German-Malay, and a person who is not attached to a particular place but is subconsciously still looking for “home.”
When people ask me the question “what are you?” I usually say … No one has really asked me “what I am,” but people ask where do I consider home. I feel a bit weird cause no one really gets my upbringing except other TCKs. When people ask me “where do you consider home?”, I reply that I can pretty much feel home anywhere, it really depends on the people who surround me.
My favorite thing about being mixed is … feeling part of and identifying with both cultures.
The most difficult thing about being mixed is … belonging everywhere and nowhere at the same time.
If I could visit anywhere in the world, it would be … Alaska.
If I had one day left on Earth, I would eat … my Mama's fish curry!!
When I was a kid, I learnt that the world is a big place and it is filled with different cultures and people. No one really knows “what they are” anymore. It is important to remember that diversity in all aspects is beautiful, including racial diversity. In the end, however, as different as we might be and see each other, we are still fundamentally all the same.
