OP, when your Caucasian friend said that your nose is small I'm almost certain they meant it as a compliment. Westerners tend to have more projected noses and a small nose is a more attractive attribute to them (i.e. even Meagan Fox got her old nose shaved down to a pointier, sleeker, smaller nose). Ironically, because Asians tend to have flatter faces in general, we perceive having a "tall" nose to be more desirable and covet the Western facial structure.
It's undeniable that the standard of beauty is Westernized, but that doesn't invalidate the appeal of Asian features. For example, I personally think that the slanty-eyed look is very sultry and more attractive than the large almond-shaped, doe-eyed look. Anyway, we should really learn to like who we are as a whole. Like a lot of others have said, it can be counter-productive to fixate on ONE feature. People are people. People are not meant to be made of the same mold as supermodels and idols.
Just for fun though, I've always been envious of BoA's gorgeous, perfect nose:
Westerners would consider her nose to be small, while Asians consider it tall. It's a matter of perspective but either way she looks flawless.
