I went to a predominately Hispanic/Black elementary & middle school and was the only kid that was Chinese and Guyanese at the school. I was exposed to a lot of micro-aggression. People also believed in many stereotypes that weren't necessarily true about myself. It wasn't easy to live up to "all asians are smart"and it still isn't. I also always felt like an outcast, I never really fit into a certain group (cliques were created based on race). I was more a floater.
I've learned to embrace it, though. I realized that it's beneficial in a way. I'm able to network, and be friends with people who aren't of my race and with those who are.
