“Mollie and I first crossed paths years ago in a New York City townhouse we shared for a weekend with other mutual friends. Five seconds after getting my first Mollie hug, I knew this woman was someone you want in your life for the long haul.

You see, meeting Mollie is not so different from knowing Mollie; her warmth and openness are unwavering, whether in the company of a stranger or her closest friend. That’s just who Mollie is. She fully embraces her unique qualities, so it’s no surprise she wrote a book helping children embody their whole authentic, diverse selves.

Though I am not multiracial and have not navigated the distinct challenges a mixed race child may experience, I can relate to the exploration of finding your own identity when you feel caught between different worlds.

As a first generation Asian American who immigrated to the states as a child, I often grappled with the conflict of owning my heritage and staying connected to my culture, while also desperately wanting to feel belonging in the world I was raised in outside of my home. What does it mean to be both Chinese and American? I still don’t have the perfect answer to that question as an adult, but I wish I had a book like this growing up that encouraged me to celebrate the special inner qualities that make me who I am as a human, first.

In my work now as the founder and host of Cubicle to CEO®, a top 100 entrepreneurship podcast and media platform elevating underrepresented voices in business – especially women of color – I deeply understand the importance of increased visibility of diverse stories. As people much wiser than me have said before, “if you can see her, you can be her.” Whether you read this book to heal your own inner child or you’re on the receiving end of the “Gam Gam, Am I mixed?” question and sharing Mollie’s beautiful message with a child you love, this book reminds us of the bright light we all carry within us. May we all be empowered to shine ours.”

“After reading, Gam Gam Am I Mixed? I wish I could have shared this book with the many “mixed” classes that came into my life as an educator. Mollie has always had a gift of knowing the prefect words for the exact situation and this is one of them. Her ability to connect with the heart shows off her talent as a writer. During these crazy life times a book like this needs to be in the hands of teachers everywhere! Gam Gam, you rock!”
