wait if it's not too much of a pain/too personal can you explain why your fellow kiwis think you're foreign?
Not too personal at all! It’s mostly just my accent. Apparently I don’t sound ‘traditionally kiwi’ by any means, so whenever people meet me for the first time they will often ask “Oh, how long have you been in the county? Do you like it here?” and stuff like that.
It’s not a big deal, but it’s fun because I’ve lived here 99% of my life.
