I Am Sri Lankan. #IamSL

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

I am Sri Lankan. I was born in Canada, grew up in America but I like it here, I’m generally accepted and people seem OK having me around. I, perhaps more than most, am not my race, I am simply Sri Lankan. I know that the dominant government identity seems to be Sinhala Buddhist or whatever, but they don’t define me or the country. I define myself, and I am Sri Lankan.
