Talking about her childhood days, Karen had said:
“When I was growing up, I grew up predominately with loads of Caucasian friends, so I was always the odd one out. And as a child I didn’t quite understand or appreciate my heritage at the time. I’m part Chinese, part Indian, and I’m also part of a tribe from where my mom was born in the northeastern part of India, in Shillong, which is a matrilineal society—the Khasi people. And then I have my Canadian and British side too. So that was really overwhelming for me as a child. You just want to fit in with everyone else.”
