For my thesis I discussed the struggles of growing up with a bounded racial identity through the medium of animation. Portraying through the personal stories I have endured, I explain to my viewers how often I struggled with my internal and external identities that either ignored or confronted the ignorance and racial mistreatment I faced growing up. The hope for my animation is to have viewers acknowledge the issue of the bounded racial identity and hopefully begin a dialogue that ignites change.
