Hmm, maybe if I pretend to have been born and raised in a tough place and had to face many hardships to get to where I am today. As opposed to the truth that I have been shaped through a very easy going and untroubled, yet broadly faceted environment in where perfection was but the only possible outcome. That would not be a too bad a mask to wear.
... Yeah, I was chinese when I grew up, and worked day and night in a shoe factory. I have traveled many miles barefooted (because of irony) in an attempt to escape the life I had lead thusfar, in search of the wonders and riches I could only have dreamt of. Snuck onto a large container ship with nothing but the clothes on my back and made my way to the western world, where I took on menial jobs to pay for college and worked myself up in the world.... What, not credible? There is asian in caucasian after all.
