Hi! I found this blog after realizing that I had no access to a support system of mixed poc, despite knowing that we have a large and diverse community out there. This blog and others have really helped me understand how I want to focus my academic pursuits…I’m hoping to complete a senior thesis next year exploring expressions of ethnic identity by mixed writers and artists in the US.
Thank you for all your energy and love!

I am an American Girl: Hispanic 50%, White and Black (25%)
I am happy to be mixed, as I am a social demographic of my American family—A mixed America. :)
However, I think that there should be more outlets and understanding for multi-racial individuals, because being multi-racial, even bi-racial, can be difficult at certain times. Happy we’re all mixed— There is love for my ‘mono-racial’ sisters and brothers out there too! We’re human!
