Most Helpful Girl
I am quite proud of my Italian heritage. I love my dark-chocolate hair and eyes, and olive skin tone--they are without a doubt my favorite features about myself. At nearly 70% of my background, it's a significant portion of my identity. Unfortunately, with being Italian, I'm the owner of some rather unpleasant (in my opinion) features.
First off, Italians are not known for their height. I barely make it to a meager 5' 4''. And, I have a short torso and large chest. Proportionally, I feel a little awkward, even though people assure me that I'm normal.
Then, there's the oily skin. Not a pleasant feature. I always feel gross, and look like I've finished running.
So, I suppose if I had to change anything, it would be to have an extra inch or two to my height, to stretch my proportions in a more favorable manor. I don't really know how to avoid the oily skin, but losing that might be a plus as well. ;)
Other than that, I can say enough how proud I am of my heritage. Italy is a beautiful, rich country with an entrancing culture. I have no real reason to want to change my roots.
