I am a registered nurse and always get told that I speak English so well. I was born in Australia and I am of Filipino background. I don’t think about my appearance until a patient or their family member points it out and they are quite amazed/baffled that someone who appears Asian “speaks so well” and could be considered a “real Australian.” The number of people I want to slap is unbelievable.
