The Mixed Generation

We speak for the Mixed Generation. The one now and the many to come.

For too long, we’ve associated being Mixed with race. But we know it’s deeper than that. While race is a big component, being Mixed also delves into Ethnicity and Culture.

Whether you’ve grown up in a household with parents of different cultures, or move to a different place with a different way of living – it’s all part of a growing Mixed experience:

Having more than one point of view.

Drawing from separate cultures and experiences.

Always being forced to choose and compromise your own identity.

As the world shrinks, more and more people are openly sharing these experiences of being more than just one category. Embracing the concept that we are more complicated than we give ourselves credit for.

Our mission to help tell the world that Story.
