Jordan has said:
I’m very, very, very mixed. My family is from England, I’m Polynesian, I’m Cambodian, I’m Nigerian, I’m Italian, I’m Greek, I’m Scandinavian. I’m a melting pot of everything. My family looks like a GAP ad. They do. There’s a little bit of everything. It’s beautiful. I think it’s exactly what an American family should be. That said, being from a small football town in Birmingham, Alabama, I really was one of the only people that looked like me. People didn’t really know what to think about that. I worked at Game Stop when I was 16, part-time, and had somebody refuse my service.
