You are so cute!
Hi! My name is Kathryn and I am short. Apparently I am “so cute” too. I guess being Filipino, being short comes with the territory. Only in my case, I am usually the shortest. Don’t get me wrong; I am not bitter or anything. I am merely stating a fact. To be honest, I like seeing the surprised looks on people’s faces when they first meet me and hear me speak because they realize that I am actually not the “cute kid” they presumed me to be. First impressions of me, I guess, are somewhat deceiving – considering I am the type of person who hates to dress up. I like to be casual and comfortable. So until we have that first conversation, you might think that I am really young.
