Hey readers, my name is Rebekah Hutson, I am a transracial adoptee known on the internet by "OnlyBlackGirl". I was adopted as a newborn from Houston, Texas and raised in super white Olympia, Washington with 5 siblings—two of whom are also black adoptees. I started this blog in 2014 on Tumblr to talk about my experiences growing up black in an all-white environment. Now with an audience of over 25k, I have expanded my work to help educate the public on social issues and teach adoptive parents how to be better prepared to raise children of color. I am of the mindset that if I can help even one family to be better, then I have served my purpose.
I hold a Bachelor’s of Science in Entertainment Management from Bay State College in Boston, MA., and have worked previously with organizations such as: Ibsen Adoption Network, PACT Family Camp, Adoptive Family Magazine, South Puget Sound Community College, Green River Community College and University of Washington, Tacoma. You could be next *wink*.
