About me

Beth Chin was born and raised in the Chicagoland area and was seventeen when she co-founded her first non-profit organization with her friends in high school, earning them the President’s Volunteer Service Award from Barack Obama. Graduating early in three and a half years, Chin received her Bachelor’s degree in Communication & Media Studies with a minor in Art & Design from DePaul University. In her career as an artist and designer, Beth Chin has had pieces featured in Windy City Live, Chicago Tribune’s RedEye, and DNAinfo as well as her book, Being Mixed, featured in multiracial media sites, including Blended Future Project and Mixed Life Media.

Being Mixed, a visual guide on multiracial, ethnic, and cultural identities, was created for those who are discovering their cross sectional identities and learning to understand others. Chin was inspired to create Being Mixed from her work abroad as a teacher and coach for under-privileged youths in Germany as well as in her foundation of All Related Art, a multiracial and ethnic community project in Hamburg, which wishes to dissolve struggles associated with that question of belonging by creating a platform through art to communicate, create, and provide a basic need for community and family.
