Madeline Bhaskar

Growing up, Madeline always lived within a mile of a cornfield. Being half-Indian and half-white, she found herself in challenging and humorous situations, navigating the space between being too Indian or too white. Whether it was strangers assuming she spoke Spanish because she “looked Latina” or a classmate claiming that her mother was “too white” to be related, Madeline has been fascinated with the concept of identity. In her writing, she explores the moments that define who we become and how we see ourselves.
