Personal Narrative: Growing Up Biracial.
Fukuyama, Mary A.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v77 n1 p12-14 Win 1999
By definition, a biracial person participates in deconstructing the prevailing paradigm of racial categories. The author experienced the ambiguity of being half Japanese and only began to claim a positive ethnic identity in college. She discusses the "both/and" of being biracial and affirms its importance in counseling. (EMK)
