Ambi = Ethnically Ambiguous

Everything you have ever wanted to know about me.

The Ambi-Fam circa 1991 (that's me in the middle)

Ambi Beginnings

I grew up in Atlanta, and I think it was in Joy and Lynn’s first grade classroom at the Children’s School where I first hear the fateful phrase “What are you?”

By the 5th grade i was the only sort-of-black girl, and since my hair was cut into a sort-of-boxy afro, I was picked to  star as Liza Lou in the the school play, no contest :/

they had me getting chased by crocodiles y'all!

Name 5 things wrong with this picture.

Middle School

Whelp, I showed up on to the public  school scene in the 7th grade (Yeek!).  So pleased was I to finally be in school with other black kids, only to be known as the “White Girl with a Jherri Curl“.

Ambey High

By the time I reached High School, I had finally found some ambi role models to look up to like

Ladybug Mecca ( of Digable Planets)

and

Mariah Carey (Don’t nobody better say nothing bad about Ms Mariah!)

Moving Forward

I continued my ambi-evolution in college and my fantastic journey through early adulthood is certainly another story for another time.  Let’s just way that somehow, someway I managed to emerge from the cocoon of ambi-awkwardness to become the confident beacon of ambiousity you see before you today!
