About

Draw Your Box is a website about diversity in Australia and beyond, encouraging people to draw their own box and be their own person in all facets of life. It was founded in 2018 by Australian journalist and diversity advocate, Alicia Vrajlal – former Editor at HuffPost Australia and now Culture Editor at Refinery29 Australia.

Its name is inspired by biracial actress (and now royal) Meghan Markle, whose father told her to ‘draw your own box’ when she struggled to tick a definite ethnicity box in a school survey in seventh grade. You can read more about that here.
