White Girl Within tells the dramatic tale of my journey to process my own radically evolved state to help others do the same. This book tells the story through dreams, dramatic re-enactments, semi-autobiographical reflections, and social critique. 


This book is structured as a series of letters between my outer identity as a Black male and the “White girl” I feel within myself. Alongside this, readers can expect stories of chance encounters with key individuals — including a controversial and widely-known transracial figure.


Each one of us experiences a narrow sliver of humanity — I hope my story can add to the rich mosaic of humanity and encourage you to discover yours. 


What will it take for Ronnie to transition from the Black man on the outside to better understand his repressed white female identity?

What Does it Take to Process Radically Evolved Identities?

Praise for White Girl Within

An unprecedented and moving first-person narrative about growing up transgracial– both transgender and transracial. With candor and courage, White Girl Within lays bare the struggle and journey of an inner White girl who clamors for self-expression behind a Black male exterior. A must-read for anyone whose identity remains socially unrecognized.

My groundbreaking work has found itself featured in POPSUGAR, Yahoo!, and the Netflix documentary: The Rachel Divide. Now, it’s available to you and your group at no additional cost.


Through this, I will virtually meet with you and your community to engage in dialogue around these topics. We can pick a section of my book, a specific issue to discuss, or go over exercises and applications of the book.


This is on top of the added resource section at the end that can aid you on your journey of self-discovery. 


I wrote White Girl Within because I wanted to nurture authentic identity in a variety of forms throughout the world. Now, I want to put my money where my mouth is and offer my time, free of charge, for groups that are growing together.


Let’s gather virtually and discuss the topics that can help us to evolve as a species of respect and understanding. I look forward to speaking with you and your group soon!

While my intent when writing was for the youth and young adults, several organizations can benefit from reading this book as a group. Some of the communities that I have worked with in the past to nurture diversity include:


School is hard enough on its own. As society continues to disregard identities and orientations, the added pressure can feel overwhelming.


Help the youth in your care or the people taking care of them to better understand what it means to take control of your identity.


Questions of gender and identity are extremely common after high school. Educators and students alike can find value in better acquainting themselves with these topics.


Looking to better understand the world around you as a company? This book is a fantastic way to broaden your knowledge and grow as a team.


You don’t need to be in a dedicated organization to have an interest in personal growth. Gather some friends together and grow as a group while learning about each of you individually.
