You can call me Jenni Hussein

Because you assumed that my family must be in the mafia because we're Italian (so what if that's a little true.)

Because I'm tired of people saying "Bada-bing" and "fuggitdaboutit" and my name with a Brooklyn accent thinking that it's hilarious. It's not, so shut up.

Because my genetics give my upper lip a bit of a shadow and a nose that's nowhere near a button and I like it that way.

Because I'm loud and I talk with my hands but that's just called a spirited conversation in my family. It's not my fault you're boring.

Because my grandparents spoke English and Italian and weren't any less American for it.

Tag, you're it.
