Nicole Draffen is a builder, a fixer, and a challenger. She loves tearing things apart to understand them, and then try to prove or disprove their merit. This allows Nicole to move through life with an air of certainty about what she knows, and also what she doesn’t know. So naturally, when Nicole lived abroad, the social and cultural consciousness of the people she met, and the things she observed inspired my natural inclination to understand and study the value of cultural norms. The more Nicole traveled overseas, the more she grew to understand certain aspects of the American perception of culture. Her journeys inspired her to write a book.
This book inspired a grassroots social movement. America is the only country that hyphenates their citizens by ethnicity before nationality. Those same boxes we allow ourselves to be placed into as hyphenated-Americans, limit our economic, educational, societal and cultural growth.
"The hyphenation of your nationality minimizes your standing in the nation. The hyphen might as well act as a minus sign. Both are represented by the same symbol and have the same consequences. Just as a minus “takes away” a numerical value, its counterpart hyphen lessens the value of your nationality." Please go to hyphened-nation.com to learn more.
