by share

The beauty of one’s being is glorious. Emma LaGon takes us on her life story as she digs for the root of the unspoken negative impacts of being mixed-raced. She relates to these impacts as evolving into her spirit. Society has perceived people who are multiracial as not enough due to the abundance of ethnicities.

LaGon says that it is sometimes hard for her to find her own identity due to others making her feel less than and therefore questioning herself. What are we supposed to do when life continues to bring you down? What do we do when we are perceived as not one in our own communities? Emma reflects on her childhood when she finally realized that she was different and she has to be okay with that. Although society has poured many pros into this controversy there are many cons that impacts the mentality of one who is multiracial. Emma LaGon will captivate the hearts of ones who feel displaced and enforce the beauty of confidence. She reflects on the Martin Luther King quote, “hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”
