When I was an adolescent, I was teased a lot because I was of mixed race (Koren/Mother - Father/English) living in a small town. But my appearance started to change as I grew older. In fact, I was given the title "Most Changed" in my high school yearbook. To shorten a long story, I have been fortunate to travel the world as a model/actor all of Asia and US because of my mixed race. Even though a small town saw one way the WORLD perceived me another way. And by the way, I made very good money doing it and was fortunate to have companies pay for me to see the world. I continue to grow in my career as a professional marketing executive in the entertainment industry. I promise you, it will get better. FYI - Those who teased me, are alcoholics or drug addicts and still remain in the small town and made nothing of their lives. Karma?! Boy do I believe in KARMA.
