I don’t know how to act

Eryne Tinajero,
Honolulu, HI.

I am biracial. I wasn’t raised with much knowledge of either culture. It’s always tough to visit the two different sides of my family. I feel as if they don’t see me as one of them. I feel like an outsider because I don’t know the cultures. I don’t know the languages. I don’t know the traditions. I don’t know who I’m supposed to be. Sometimes I feel as if I’m missing a big part of my identity.
