Hannah Jackson Matthews is the content  creator behind Hey TRA (Hey Transracial Adoptee). Through Hey TRA, she creates digital content for transracial adoptees (people raised by families whose race and ethnicities are different than their own) and their families in order to better navigate race, embrace identity, and combat racism and white supremacy. She is an adult transracial adoptee— a biracial woman who was domestically and privately adopted as an infant by white parents. The racial difference between her and her parents made navigating race, racism, and culture along with developing a positive racial identity extremely difficult. Her experiences informed her first career as a teacher, and drove her to earn her master’s degree in Urban Education from the University of Pennsylvania. Although she’s no longer in the classroom in a traditional sense, Hannah uses education as a means to combat racial ignorance and racism.
