Being transracially adopted (by Caucasian parents) comes with a plethora of advantages and challenges. One of the most common misconceptions that I face on a daily basis is the assumption that I was raised in an Chinese family and speak Mandarin, when actually neither of those are true. Stereotypes are one of the most predominant forms of microagressions. Additionally, as a woman, and as a woman of color, and as a queer woman of color, I can attest to the fact that people, society, and the world are not one-dimensional; an intersectional lens is imperative to driving social change.
