My name is Emma, and I’m applying for the Thomas J Watson Fellowship which is a grant that supports a year of independent study. My project proposal centers around two main ideas: learning how mixed people understand their identity and investigating if mixed people share a common experience regardless of where they live. I will then apply this knowledge to my own journey as a mixed person when I connect with my Chilean heritage.

I’m looking for people who live in Canada, Chile, England, France, Japan, South Korea, or Sweden and identify as multiracial who I can interview about their experience. If you are interested or know anyone who may be interested, please email me at for more.
