My Extremely European DNA

Recently, out of pure curiosity, I decided to order a DNA testing kit from Ancestry. It is not one of my proudest purchases – it costs quite a bit and the results can be underwhelming (depending on what you are expecting to see). Nevertheless, curiosity got the better of me and I received the kit, spat into a tube, sent it off, and now I’ve received the results! In doing so, I have been able to confirm what I already knew: I am extremely European. For anyone who, strangely, happens to take interest in my genetic origins, my results are shown below.
