Hi there! I’m Tracy, a book blogger over at Truffle’s Literary Wonders and I am Mauritian (Chinese Mauritian/Sino Mauritian – Mauritian).
I come from a tiny little country in the middle of nowhere made up of various cultures but mostly stemming from China, India, Africa, and Europe. So, it’s a bit of a cocktail of cultures. Short story is, this little island was colonised by the French and then the English (after both the Portuguese and the Dutch ate all the Dodos — yes that’s where they come from — and decided to leave) and so they brought many slaves and workers from Africa, and many people from Asia came down to work there.
So, there are a lot of cultures there, and I happen to be mixed Chinese, where my father’s side is Mauritian Chinese and my mother’s side is mixed European and African. But I basically look like a mixed Asian because nobody can ever tell where I’m from. However, I now live in Australia.
