Think of the most beautiful woman you can imagine Growing up what I pictured was a woman with sparkling almond-shaped blue eyes with long straight jet black hair who is tall thin yet voluptuous with flawless olive skin As a little girl this is the woman that I thought I would grow up to be even though my eyes are brown It is the combination of individual characteristics of what I considered perfection among the different cultures in my life Throughout my life my cultural background based on each of my parents ethnic backgrounds the society I was raised in as well as my own personality has shaped my personal concept of beauty and has resulted in my belief that everywhere within everyone beauty can be found My mother born and raised in South Korea was the rock in my life She like many other native Koreans I have met is reserved and silently critical of her surroundings I have never heard my mother lightly say that someone or something was beautiful She isnt the kind to freely show much affection or emotion Even so my interest in all things Asian grew from my heritage On top of that of the seventeen years spent living with my parents eight of them were spent living in Japan and Guam with many visits to Korea sprinkled between I took notice of the small frames common to Asian people as well as their beautiful hair and slanted eyes My father born and raised in Colombia was all kisses and hugs He treated my sister and me like princesses rarely ever scolding or reprimanding us When I was two or three years old I went around telling everyone that my name was Kaylinda As the story goes everyone especially my father upon greeting me would say Ay que linda which translated from Spanish means how pretty My father raised me to believe that I was the most beautiful girl
