Growing up I was exposed to many cultures and ethnicities from a young age. I grew up in Banff, Alberta. Alberta is traditionally thought to be very white and euro-centric. Banff, however, has a very large Japanese population. When I was younger my friends and half of my classmates were Japanese, the other half being white or first nations. In addition to that, my mother is from New Zealand and of Maori descent. My father, however, is half Icelandic and half Danish.
