Biracial. Choosing everyone instead (of) no one

Sarah
Seattle, WA

Growing up biracial in a small, conservative, and rural town often left me feeling like I didn’t belong. No one could fully relate so I was shy and reserved. As I grew older, I realized that being biracial and bicultural is a gift that enables me to connect with a broad spectrum of people in many different ways. Our self identity has tremendous impact on the path we take in our lives and the power of turning my racial identity into a positive force changed me deeply.
