As Korean as you are Korean

Tesha Post,
Holland, MI.

I was adopted from Korea when I was six months old and grew up living in the U.S. with my White parents. As a result, I do not speak Korean or know how to cook Korean foods. People are often surprised to hear this– they may react with disappointment, confusion, or even relief. I enjoy talking about my cultural background because I find that even if someone isn’t asking outright, they are wondering privately.
