U.S. diplomat? But you look Asian.

As an U.S. diplomat serving overseas, my job is to represent American society, with all of its varied nuances and complexities. However, I often find myself facing these very words in both my personal and professional spheres. Unfortunately, due to the nature of diplomacy, there’s often not much more I can do other than put on a smile and answer them with “yes, I am American”.
