Karamel is a designer who hopes to foster community and more representation through her work. She strives to lend a helping hand to amplify the voices of those who go unheard.
Her newest project, Mixn, aims to build a community among people who identify as mixed-race or multiracial individuals to help with isolation and feelings of otherness.
Racial Imposter Syndrome is when people doubt their own racial identity. It is easy for people who identify as mixed-race or multiracial to feel isolated and feel like they don’t belong in a specific group since their experiences are different from monoracial people. Many people in this community struggle with their own identity. With Mixn, she hopes to create a more welcoming and celebratory space where people of mixed backgrounds can feel safe sharing their stories and cultures with others.
