Uit de Wereld by Albert de Leeuw and Yvonne Zoethout
Have you ever wondered what it's like growing up with a mixed background? "Uit de Wereld" provides a unique insight into the lives of twenty-five young adults who share their personal experiences of pride and enrichment, but also of doubt and uncertainty.
As authors with mixed backgrounds themselves, Albert de Leeuw and Yvonne Zoethout have faced identity-confusing situations throughout their lives. After meeting more people with mixed backgrounds, they realized that this is a large and underrepresented group in society. This led them to share their own story and the stories of others in a vulnerable and honest way, along with portrait photos in their book.
Their hope is to contribute to creating a space for recognition, acknowledgment, and positive self-image formation in the search for identity. Join us in exploring the diverse and fascinating experiences of those with mixed backgrounds, and gain a deeper understanding of the complexities and joys of this unique aspect of identity.
