I too am curious as to where this 13% is coming from in my DNA. Growing up I was also asked what ethinicity I am. People have assumed biracial, Hawaiian, or Filipino. Hair stylists have commented on the texture of my hair having an ethnic feel to it. My Dad's side of the family have Asian shaped dark brown eyes and dark brown hair, which I inherited. These questions and my own personal curiosity drove me to the DNA test. It seems fairly accurate in representing my Mother's side, however, I am not sure where the Finnish Volga/Ural is coming from. I have no ancestors from Finland or Russia. I also have 7% Persian. My Dad's side is a little cloudy as to everything we are (lost of deadends in the family tree) - it's Heinz 57, so the possibility exists that this is too is accurate. I would like to assume that this is clarifies that I have some Asian in me which explains my appearance. I hope we can get more answers in the near future.
