Mistaken Cultural Identity-July 21, 2022

There was a time in my life when multiple people thought I was Russian. I had people coming up to me on a regular basis saying “Privet” and continuing to say something that I didn’t comprehend. They were surprised when I told them I wasn’t Russian and didn’t have Russian ancestry (that I know of!). For whatever reason, I was giving off Russian vibes. I still can’t explain that one!

For today’s prompt, write about a time when someone thought you were from somewhere else or made a mistake with your identify.
