Belonging everywhere and nowhere.

We always expound on the virtues of being a multicultural global citizen of the world.

BUT.

1) This Chinese ethnic org will not recognize my 50% Chinese makeup because my birth cert says I am Malay (so I can’t apply for funding)

2) This Malay ethnic org will not recognize my 50% Malay makeup because I’m not a Muslim (so I can’t apply for funding)

3) This conf grant will not recognize my Asian citizenry because I’m a resident in Australia (so I can’t apply for funding)

4) This women’s org will not recognize my Australian residence because I hold a Singapore passport (so I can’t apply for funding)

Have I reached peak multicultural global citizenry? (No)

Is this just a bad morning of grant application disappointments? (Yes)

Okay. I have purged the bad feels. Onward and forward.

From now on my race is ‘Human’ and my citizenry is ‘Internet’.
