I am from Georgia, my father looks as if his distant relative could be East Asian, my mother looks slavic.
My brother looks Italian and I have been mistaken to be
Half Russian Half Chinese
It has been numerous times I got stopped by people on streets and asked
“Are you a foreigner or are you from Xinjiang? half Chinese half Russian?”
Yesterday I was told Xinjiang is famous for beautiful people and most Chinese celebrities are from there, and I guess I dhould take it as a compliment, they told me I can also try “acting”.
But I am just confused how can I be mistaken for so many so different nationalities?
