I’m biracial & multi-ethnic: I’m Human.

I’m biracial. I’m not just African American, I’m also American, German, English and Irish! Many say “You’re black,” sure but I’m not just that. Do not reduce my race and ethnic background to a single word. I do not belong to a single group, I belong to many. I am a young woman, furthering her education and work to better her life for herself, her family, and the future of the world. If you must categorize me, must describe me in a single word… Human. Human is the single most descriptive and accurate word.
