You describe yourself as being from New Zealand and Japan. Is that because of your parents or the fact that you lived in both places as a child?
I was born in Sapporo in the northern island of Hokkaido in Japan to a Japanese father and a mother from New Zealand. We lived in Sapporo and Yokohama before moving to Auckland in New Zealand when I was six so my first language was Japanese though I express myself better in English now.
