Benefits of being a mixed race child

I think for me, being mixed race, the benefits are that I was always told by my parents that I was wonderful, that I was special, that I was unique, and I believed them. Because I had exposure to two different worlds, two very different worlds. My dad is white, he's Jewish, and he's from San Francisco. My mom was southern, dark-skinned, African-American. And together we had an amazing mixed race family that I'm very proud of.
