I stood in the DePaul University student center earlier this year with one of the most active multi-racial students I work with. Together, a team of staff on our campus had been working with her and others to develop a new multi-racial student organization on campus.

Book Review - Mixed
I read the entire book, Mixed from cover to cover. My immediate thoughts while reading the book was how much I could relate to these students’ narratives being a biracial female myself. Specifically, I learned how disconnected some multiracial students can feel from their racial/ethnic identities, which is something I experienced during periods of my life.
