What's The Weirdest Compliments You've Received As A POC?

Thank you?

Being different can be, well — different.

Some people have a nagging need to point them out.

Luckily, you're well-versed in owning those situations.

And you take it in stride.

But every once in a while, someone gives you a "compliment" that leaves you confused AF.

Maybe someone told you that you were "exotic-looking."

Or a stranger was shocked at how "well-spoken" you are.

Maybe someone compared your hair to the first thing that popped in their mind.
