Lance Lie Posted 8 months ago For people who have a hard time answering the question: "Where are you from?" This a hard question to answer for me since I am half Chinese and half German. I was born and raised in Michigan and taught great values from my parents. I moved to Huntington Beach, California 12 years ago. When people ask me where I am from, I hesitate to answer because Huntington Beach is in Orange County which has a certain stigma of snobby self center people. I agree with what Simona Rich posted that when people are particularly proud of their country of birth or residence, it puts limitations on them. I myself am very proud to be an American, but I am very open minded and love to travel the world while meeting and talking to new people. Doing so has only expanded my mind and opened my eyes to different cultures.
