was it traumatic to grow up not surrounded by Jews?

israeli here {:-)

as far as i know i’m 100% ashkenazi jewish but i don’t look like it, i have light brown hair, emerald green eyes and white skin with lots of freckles. not gonna lie, growing up not being surrounded by people who look like you was very traumatic for me i never experieced any racism but it was very isolating, dosen’t help-that there’s really no northern Europeans in israel

so i’m curious to hear from diaspora jews, i know some of you did grow up surrounded by jews but for those who weren’t was it traumatic?
