  • Hey guys, it's Kim Dao here welcome back to my channel. You may see that the background is different and yes

  • I've moved into my apartment. We just moved in so we are still setting up the apartment

  • There's still stuff everywhere so this is just my temporary filming setup. It's still stuff everywhere, so this is my temporary filming setup

  • Hope it will all be done, so see you guys might get an apartment tour coming up. Anyway today's video

  • I'm going to be trying out something very interesting

  • I am going to be finding out what my actual ethnicity is and how my DNA affects

  • I guess my lifestyle since I've started YouTube, the question I get asked the most is

  • What ethnicity are you and even though

  • I've said it so many times people still I guess get the wrong idea and they tell people that I'm actually Japanese

  • I'm actually Korean whenever I get asked this question I always respond with Vietnamese because to me it makes sense my

  • Parents, my grandparents are Vietnamese, so I just tell them that I am Vietnamese

  • But I get a lot of people telling me that I'm not actually Vietnamese. I'm actually Korean or Japanese and I'm like

  • Okay, now. I know my ethnicity

  • Is quite confusing because my channel I base it around Japanese makeup and skincare traveling in Japan and Korea

  • I speak Japanese I lived in Japan so you know I understand it does get confusing most of my family live in Denmark so

  • Yeah, I thought today once and for all I'm going to be telling you guys where I'm actually from by doing a DNA

  • Test. So in today's video,

  • I'm going to be doing a test to see where my ancestors are

  • actually from and I'm going to be doing this with the help of

  • 23andme so the name 23andme comes from the fact that the human DNA has

  • 23 pairs of chromosomes and from the tests that you take you might find some information

  • On where your ancestors are from and also how your DNA

  • Influences your lifestyle for example how you sleep, taste buds, your facial features, just to name a few. Anyway,

  • I never really looked into my family tree at all when people ask me what my ethnicity is I always responded with Vietnamese because

  • That's the answer that makes the most sense to me, but I always knew that there's probably like other

  • Ethnicities that I'm mixed with which I don't really know about. So let's get started and find out what I actually am.

  • First off, you need to order your 23andme kits, which I have right here

  • And then you need to follow the instructions inside. Then your sample and also register your sample, set it off

  • and it will be analyzed. So let's just open up and try it out today first.

  • I'm going to register my sample kit that I have to go to

  • 23andme.com/start

  • and then you have to register your details here to sign up for us

  • So I'm gonna do that now. Now that I've registered, I have to verify my email.

  • So I have received email right it's in the quick verify email alright

  • So then you get sent to this page where you need to find your barcode.

  • This is a package when you open it up, so you've got this and your barcode is just on here.

  • So I'm gonna register that now. Alright, that's all done now, registered.

  • I need to spit inside this test tube. So for your results to be more accurate,

  • don't eat and drink for at least 30 minutes.

  • I had a snack about an hour ago, so it should be okay now.

  • So I need to spit until I get to the line right here,

  • and then this part here should fill up. Then you have to close this and you remove this and then close it with this.

  • Got it. Let's do this.

  • Ew.

  • May be a little bit more. Alright,

  • there we go. Alright got that I don't know if you guys want to see close up of my spit

  • That's kind of gross. Then now let's close this part. So this part is meant to pierce through...

  • Yep going through it's going through can you see it? Going down? Oh got it!

  • Okay

  • Ooh it's mixing. Can you see that? Oh, that's kind of gross. And then you want to put this inside the bag.

  • Let's put that in there, so now we're gonna seal the bag which is

  • Taking off this blue stuff right here. So I've done all I can now,

  • I just have to wait six to eight weeks for my results that I will see you guys when I get them

  • Hey guys, so it's been about six weeks since I last filmed the part where I gave my sample to 23andme.

  • I just received an email that my test results are ready, so I'm really excited to find out what I actually really am so

  • Before I look at the results. I have a feeling that I'm going to be 100% Vietnamese

  • I do believe I do have a bit of Chinese in me,

  • I don't know how much.

  • So, let's just get straight onto it and have a look at the results. From the results that yes,

  • I am 100 percent Asian, which is already given. I already knew that, but uh yeah, I am

  • 76.8%

  • Vietnamese, Southeast Asian, actually it might not even be fully Vietnamese. Um they didn't tell me exactly and East Asian

  • 22.8%

  • probably Chinese, okay, so

  • Now you can go back to I guess your physical traits, and let's have a look. Likely to sneeze after eating dark chocolate...

  • I don't eat dark chocolate,

  • I don't really like it, but I don't recall sneezing after eating dark chocolate before this so, that might be true.

  • Less back hair. I guess I don't really have that much back hair so that's true

  • Let's have a look at my DNA family. Okay, so this tells me are where my other relatives are who have also taken this test

  • 337 DNA relatives in my 23andme DNA family so that's really interesting.

  • So I don't have any close family like close family or second cousins,

  • but I do have third to fourth cousins or fifth to distant cousins, um

  • 294 of them, so I can actually see the world map, and it seems like all of them live in the u.s.

  • So let's look at the US map

  • 55 live in California, 5-10 in Texas, 5-10 in Virginia

  • 5-10 in New York and then and

  • ancestry of your DNA relatives so

  • Actually most of them are Chinese, so 185 of them are Chinese,

  • 140 are Southeast Asians, 20% is Korean, okay, so comparing me and my DNA relatives

  • 105 percent more likely

  • to be able to do the side

  • splits. I used to be able to do the splits when I was like very young, not anymore though.

  • 75% more likely to make new year's resolutions,

  • not sure about that because I do make new year's resolutions, but they last for about a week

  • and I'll forget about them, 70% more likely to be able to do a cartwheel.

  • I guess when I was young I used to be able to not anymore...

  • 68% less likely to have lived near a farm when they were young

  • Yeah, never lived near a farm. 60% more likely to have perfect pitch... alright.

  • Well, there's more. 46% more likely to have learned a foreign language as an adult? Yep? I um

  • learnt Japanese when I was already an adult. 38% less likely to drink caffeinated soda.

  • I don't like drinking soda. 34% less likely

  • to be able to wiggle their ears, I cannot do it at all.

  • 33% more likely to like the taste of fresh cilantro. I

  • don't like it. 29% less likely to own a cat. Yeah. I don't think I can ever get a cat. I prefer dogs

  • I'm a dog person. 29% less likely to sweat while sleeping.

  • I don't think I sweat that much at all and yeah

  • I don't really sweat while sleeping at all. 25% more likely to be able to curl their tongue

  • No, I can't do it. 22% less likely to own a dog, now that's interesting because I do own dogs,

  • I like dogs. 20% more likely to be able to wiggle their nose... I

  • can't do it. 19% less likely to have sweaty feet.

  • Yeah, I don't think my feet gets sweaty that easily. 18% more likely to be able to whistle I

  • Can't whistle...

  • 17% more likely to like the taste of fresh cucumber. Now, this is funny because I don't like cucumbers.

  • I don't like bean sprouts or cucumber because they just taste like crunchy water to me.

  • 14% less likely to like the taste of dark licorice. Yes true because I don't like dark liquorice. 13% percent more likely to exercise

  • at light to moderate intensity. Yeah, I guess I would be pretty light when I exercise. A lot of information about me

  • I just found out about. That's very, very interesting stuff. I've got a lot of I guess," relatives" in the US.

  • That's really interesting stuff that I didn't know before finding out a few more things about me

  • and I guess my ancestry line. Yeah, it really helps me uh I guess connect more with

  • who I am and

  • where I come from. Anyway guys, that's it for this video. Hopefully you guys enjoyed it and learnt a bit more about me.

  • I learned a lot about myself through the 23andme test results so that was really cool.
