Hi, maybe you're thinking of hua2yi4? I've been told this means a person who is ethnically Chinese but wasn't necessarily born or raised in China. The simplified is 华裔 and I'm sorry but I don't know the traditional. But honestly I've had limited success using this word, and you might just have to describe the situation in a sentence, like 他的爸爸妈妈是中国人,他在美国出生和长大。(ta1de5ba1ba5ma1ma5shi4zhong1guo2ren2,ta1zai4mei3guo2chu1sheng1he2zhang3da4 = His parents are Chinese, he was born and raised in the United States.)
