My name may be French, but only God knows where the rest of me came from. I’m just a 25 year old Mixed woman living in the South who’s obsessed with scary movies, cute things, and figuring out where in the world I fit.

My father is Cherokee and African American and my mother is German, Irish, and Chinese somewhere up the line. From dabbling on Ancestry.com I’ve learned the name of the slave ship my family was transported on, that someone on my mother’s side was a missionary to China and possibly married one of the locals. My family history is confused by labels of “Colored” on birth certificates and a jumble of cultures that I am still trying to sift through and explore. Being multi-racial is an adventure without much of a road map and I hope that eventually I’ll find my way.
