What kind of Asian are you?

Hallie,

This is what I get the most as an international student studying in the United States of America. I feel like it is about how I look, what kind of language I speak, where I come from, ‘am I Chinese’, ‘can you understand other Asia nations’ languages?’. Some people might come to say, ‘oh so you cannot speak that language, I thought you guys are the same’, which is annoying and offensive at the same time for other people and me. I don’t think that people should judge each other like that because we are all human and live on the same planet.
