Takeshi Kaneshiro is a Japanese actor and singer of mixed heritage - his father is Okinawan and his mother is Taiwanese.

After being bullied at a regular Taiwanese high school, the Gaoxong Preparatory School, over his mixed heritage, he enrolled at English-based Taipei American School, which enabled him to converse in English, making him effectively multi-lingual considering his fluency in Mandarin, Taiwanese (his first-spoken language), and Japanese. As a result of his varied background, Kaneshiro can speak with varying degrees of fluency in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, and Japanese. It was while he was studying there that he began doing TV commercials, and he decided to quit school in order to pursue a singing and acting career.

Businesses will pay people big money to translate business deals so I bet he has many opportunities from fluent in more than one language.

He was lucky enough to escape his bullies by changing schools but some kids arent that lucky. If your parents would allow it though I encourage kids to change schools if they are not helped with their problems.
