Mixed-race families are becoming more and more commonplace, as evidenced by everything from The Pew Research Center’s data to the latest Census reports. In this episode, we continue to talk about the experiences of those who come from mixed-race families, like Katie Bullard and Jesse Chen.
Katie Bullard, who is Chinese, lives with her parents, both white, and her younger brother Jacob, who is Vietnamese, in Brevard, North Carolina. Her two older siblings, Gio and Jessie, are both mixed-race and also adopted. Bullard graduated with a degree in English from Guilford College in 2017, and hopes to soon teach English abroad.
Jesse Chen is a DJ from Hartford, Connecticut. He is Asian and white as well as Jewish, and has worked at Temple Sinai as a song leader and URJ Eisner Camp as a camp counselor. He currently works at Powerstation Events.
