I am not the color of my skin.
I am not my semi-squinted eyes or my small nose.
I am not my small mouth and my round face.
I am not my small stature or my black hair.
I am not simply my Asian background.
I am my determination and hard work.
I am my compassion and my kindness.
I am my intelligence and my strength.
I am my happiness and my reliability.
I am not the stereotype of my ethnicity.
I am more than what you see on the surface.
I am much more.
I will always be much more.
