AboutHi! My name is Ellie and my Polygence project is on biracial identity. I chose to work on this project because I'm biracial myself and want to discuss the topic. After my project is complete, I would like to get my project published or put on a public platform.

The Identity Development Processes of White/Asian Biracial versus White Monoracial Adolescents
Started July 22, 2022
Abstract or project description
The amount of biracial individuals is rapidly increasing and most of them are young teens. As a biracial teen of both White and Asian descent, the question of my own identity was prominent for me in a majority monoracial world. I have been curious about the difference between biracial and monoracial teens. So this research paper looks at how the processes of identity development of White/Asian biracial are different from White monoracial adolescents.
