    I'm a U.S. citizen and lived there for five years but I'm the UK now and have been for ten or so years.

    With Brexit I'm not sure if I wanna be a UK citizen, one of the reasons my family moved here was so they could move around the EU and live there without going through immigration again.

    That being said I really dunno what nationality I am. I don't feel at home in the UK because people love to make fun of me for my accent and I'm not familiar enough with the U.S. because I've been gone for so long - so I'm kinda alienated when I go there because I'm not familiar with the culture e.g. freshman, sophomores etc. What does it mean?!
    :dontknow:
    What do any of us mean? Are we all just a painting waiting to come to life? :moon:

    There seems to be some confusion regarding what the word "nationality" means. As an example - if your parents are both Chinese, however they emigrated to the UK and you were born and raised in the UK, you're a UK native. Your nationality is British. Your ethnicity would be Asian, however, and your race would be Chinese (though, race and ethnicity are generally considered to be interchangeable terms). Hence the questions "What is your nationality?" and "How would you describe your ethnicity?" both typically being featured on application forms.

    My nationality is English. My parents are both English. As for my ethnicity, if you can call it that, my mum comes from an Irish-Aussie family and my dad a Scottish family, but as I said my parents are both considered English.

    I'm also half Pakistani. I do not identify as British-Pakistani, I identify as White/Asian when filling out forms.

    Bruv why do this.
    And you also need to reverse what you say is Asian and what you say is Chinese, that is laughably wrong. Asian is race Chinese is nationality as China is the country. If someone is not Chinese but lives in China, raised there, has citizenship there, they are Chinese. No matter their race. :facepalm:
