The majority of my life my most frequently asked questions have always been what are you, where are you from, where are your parents from, and so many other variations of these questions. I have always tried to give the shortest answer possible. Constantly repeating it becomes annoying sometimes. Then there are those moments where I have told certain people what it is I am and they attempt to argue with me. I have been told I couldn’t possible be what I said I was because my look doesn’t match.
People have literally come to me with an argument in tow trying to discredit who I say I am simply based off a pre determined look they have made up in their mind. Then there are those who will sit there and guess every ethnicity in the book. I have heard so many different potential ethnicities I could be here all day listing them.
Despite all of that I have always had an idea of what ethnicities I am, but I always figured there had to be more or something I wasn’t aware of. So I thought it would be pretty cool to take the test. One of my friends recently took part in dna testing in atlanta and her results were incredibly enlightening, so I could not wait to see what my own DNA would show. It took about 6 or 7 weeks to get the results back after spitting into a tube, shaking it up with some blue liquid, and sending it in. It is great that they have something like this and it says as technology increases the percentages of the results could change.
As a person who loves to travel, getting the results will give me more ideas of places I need to visit and learn more about those places. So I was very excited when the results came back in. Some of what came back I was aware of and the rest I was surprised. I was more so surprised on the percentages. To see my results, check out the video below!
