Does my Taiwanese character look fine?

So iam making a story. and my main character is from Taiwan so iam just making this post to make sure she looks acceptable so I don’t offend anyone.

Also some people say that not all chinese/Taiwanese people have smaller eyes and some have bigger eyes is that true? this is a genuine question.

Thank you! :blob_hearts:

It is true.

I’d reccomend looking up people to base your character off them. Not only to represent them best, but it also helps make your character more realistic.

I have another question if you don’t mind is it okay to make them only speak English?

I don’t know chinese and google translate is not accurate…

I’d follow the advice given to you by other users, but it doesn’t seem like you know a lot about writing characters from Taiwan. Why are you making her Taiwanese?

If you’re gonna mention the language just to throw it in it’s actually called mandarin!

Actually, there are two chinese dialects. I’m Chinese and my mom speaks cantonese, it’s more complicated and less common than mandarin.
Secondly, @_sparclelluna, Asian people are generally stereotyped to have small, thin eyes. It’s not true. My grandfather, my dad, and I all have big, round eyes. Really, any eye shape would do.
