When a stranger see me on the street, usually they don’t see me. They don’t notice me.

I don’t want them to see me. It would be great if they don’t notice me. I think that, like, I don’t like to attract a lot of attention, I prefer not to. So yeah, but in a, in a work environment, I would prefer to show up as someone who’s very thoughtful and curious, and hardworking.

When people see me, they see an asian person, if they ever notice me. They wouldn’t think about what I do, they see my ethnicity before my occupation.

I don’t think about what other people think of me most of the time. So I know what I think of myself. I’d like to think of myself as a lifelong learner. But I’m not sure if that can be categorized as an impression that I make to other people. I don’t care — I don’t really care about what other people think of me most of the time.

I guess, instead of wouldn’t change, I wouldn’t lie about where I’m from — my heritage, my culture, where I’m here for and what I believe in. I think that these labels, these, you know, words, I identify with the most, I would never lie about it, or try to change it.

You know the song head shoulders knees and toes, Yeah, I think that’s pretty much describes me of who I am. I am, like, a soul within a body, and that’s pretty much how I work too. I use my head to think, I use my shoulders and hands to work, and I use my knees and toes to walk and explore the world. So I think that’s how I would describe myself. It’s a person exploring in the world and constantly learning.
