I'm Not From Japan

I am full Japanese, fluent, born in Huntington Station, New York, and raised in Portland, Oregon. My parents taught me the language as my first, and I also attended Japanese school every Saturday to learn how to read and write. My zine is a compilation of questions/comments I hear way too often being asian. Honestly, I have gotten so used to it that it doesn't bother me, but now I just find it funny and embrace it! Back then, I was kind of shy and less expressive, but now I am totally comfortable embracing my differences. I thought it would be a silly way to turn those comments into a zine!
