Can’t fit me in a box!

All my life I’ve gotten the “what are you?” question. It seems to be human nature to try and categorize people in order to identify them better somehow. Being French Creole and Sicilian, I have always loved being racially ambiguous, because my identity goes way beyond man made categories. I am physically part of my families roots, but I am also a product of the neighborhood I grew up in, the music I listened to, and the many diverse friends and neighbors I surrounded myself with. Our identities cannot be summed up in a checked box. It is a beautiful, unique, and multidimensional puzzle. 🙂
