“Identifying as ‘Biracial’ is something that’s more recent for me. Growing up in Brooklyn, I went to schools that were almost all Black; and I was always the lightest one in my class. So I felt like it was important for me to identify as Black just because I already look White. I always made it a point to say that I was Black. I wanted people to know that I was like them too. Then I went to a high school that was more diverse with different cultures and different races and then it felt okay for me to be both. Now I say I’m Biracial.”
