I cannot fully express how much I love this. This reminds me of the struggles I had coloring a family portrait growing up and constantly having the feeling that my pictures received extra scrutiny because of how I colored everyone’s skin. Being the only mixed kid for 9 years made my parents really curious as to how I saw myself.

Day 6: What countries did your ancestors come from/what is your nationality?

My ancestors come from Scotland, Ireland (Scotts Irish), England, Germany, Africa, and the Cherokee Nation and Blackfoot Tribe in the United States. My nationality is American/Usonian. Basically, I’m part of the great American melting pot.

Day 4: If you were given a year to travel the world where would you go?

Uh, pretty much everywhere! I would do a quick road trip to Austin for Austin City Limits, maybe check out Providence, Rhode Island aka “The Renaissance City,” Then I would go on a 5.5 month tour of Europe, taking my time to absorb like 50 cultures, take a couple weeks across Africa, and then go across Asia for the remainder of the year.

Day 3: If you could speak another language, what would it be?

한국어, obvi. I can already speak it a bit and read it, but if I could be completely fluent in just one language other than English, Korean would be my first choice. Not just because of music or television over there, but the language itself is intrinsically beautiful in my opinion - even down to the way the syllabic blocks function.

I know, I’m a language nerd…okay maybe just a straight up nerd nerd.
