Balancing My Opposite Identities

A few weeks ago I was asked to describe myself in one word. Without hesitation I said “whasian,” which is a combination of the words “white + Asian.” I said this because my father is white and my mother is Korean, and I’ve always felt that I’m the exact mix of my very culturally different […]
