My name is Kumar. I use this platform to share my experience surrounding being adopted from India as an almost two year old. I grew up in a small town in Southwest Ohio and now call Chicago home. As a transracial adopted person much of my reflection centers around my paradoxical experience of race, culture and language having to navigate multiple cultures. I believe that being adopted has had a significant impact on my experience and performance of personal identity. I have found that through intentionally engaging with this portion of my identity and life experience I have been able to live a fuller more complete life.
