    "I actually got my kit earlier than expected even though I completely forgot about having this kit around (got it from the 23andme black friday sale). Might buy one for my mom on mother's day I think she'lll like it considering we're an immigrant family. It's a good way to keep in touch with your ancestral roots ☺"

    "Not the best DNA testing for ethnicity I've seen so far. I really like the option they give you to see which personality traits your genes influence... I'm an MBTI buff so I had a really fun time with that feature 👌"

    "Love this. My coworkers said this one is the best dna testing kit for ancestry and I think they're right! It's from NatGeo so how can you really go wrong with that? I just hope buyers get to receive their results sooner, but perhaps, that's just me "

    "Got my results super quick and I don't really have complaints. It's interesting to see how far your family's line goes. DNA tests give you a deeper sense of self that you can't get anywhere else somehow (unless your family is like super obsessed with your ancestors)."

    "Now that the whole trend of DNA testing is over, I tried buying one because I'm such a hipster... I now totally get why it was such a big deal back then! It was so fun to learn that I have some European and Asian genes in me! Who would've known that I'd be more?"

    "My best friend got me one for a weird kris kringle event we had back home. Really enjoyed her gift because I've grown fond of the on-going ancestry updates I get. It only makes sense to give users that because knowledge is an ever expanding thing as time goes by! If you must buy a DNA test, buy this."
