      On the first day of my freshman year, I discovered one of my suitemates was mixed race, just like me. She was one of the few people I’d met who could understand my confusion at navigating my multiracial identity. In my honors class, I met another girl of Middle Eastern descent and more queer people than I’d ever witnessed in…
