About Nicole's Book:
Hyphened-Nation: Don’t Check the Box, written by Nicole Draffen, is a must-read.
Hyphened-Nation was inspired by her travels overseas, and time spent living in the United Kingdom. Living abroad was an eye opening experience, she grew to understand certain aspects of American culture better, the longer she lived overseas.
This book is about her insights, and experience of being treated as a pure American, rather than as a hyphenated one. The difference was startling, and lead her on a journey to understand why The United States is one of the only, if not the only country, that hyphenates its 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.
This book focuses on ways the U.S. and Europe differ culturally via media, and how a bridge might be created.
She hopes this book inspires you to join the movement and, “Don’t Check the Box.”

About the Author:
Nicole Draffen, the author of Hyphened-Nation: Don’t Check the Box, 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 her 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 her natural inclination to understand and study the value of cultural norms. The more she traveled overseas, the more she grew to understand certain aspects of the American perception of culture. Her journeys was the inspiration to write this book.
However, when she is not making plans on how to change the world, you can find her in her garden tending to a vast variety of plants, Feng Shui-ing everything in sight, pursuing her passion of collecting old paintings, attending jazz festivals, antiquing and running. Nicole truly believes that each of us can achieve whatever we set out to do, if we are determined, and remain positive.
