I am a multiracial person, mixed with East Indian, German, Black and Native American. I stand out more than most people, and I yet I am one of the most quiet, shy people some claim they have ever met.
Recently, I have had this spurge of inspiration come across me, to break out of my shell and let the world get to know the real me.
I believe that I have sat back for far too long, allowing others to decide for me who I am. I cannot say, that at times I am not irritated by the questions, I receive, such as who are you? Where are do you come from? Like I am some alien form.
I am a beautiful woman, with a unique voice in the world, and only ask for friendship and understanding. A part deep within me, understands where the confusion lies, and I think it’s because most people are not aware of ideas, practices outside of their limitations and barriers.
However, I do believe that multiracial people are not weak or inferior as many would like to believe, I think they serve a unique purpose and that’s to break the mold, open minds, increase human value and offer a variety of perspectives.
My only prayer is that I wont be continuously overlooked, based off of my race, instead I hope to be heard and taken seriously, because I take everyone I deal with seriously.
Thank you for creating this community.
