Tracy White is a cartoonist and teacher. She believes stories can change the world.

Her current book, Unaccompanied: Stories of Brave Teenagers Seeking Asylum tells the true experiences of brave teens fleeing their home countries to seek asylum in the U.S. Based on extensive interviews Tracy helps us understand why some young people would literally risk their lives to seek safety in the US. Each one of them has been backed into a corner where emigration to the US seems like their only hope.

Tracy’s first graphic novel, How I Made it to Eighteen: A Mostly True Story was a Bank Street Book of the year, a Yalsa Great Graphic Novel, and a Texas Maverick Graphic Novel.

Her webcomics TRACED was nominated twice for an Ignatz and was a TV series for Oxygen TV.

When not making comics, she’s a mom, cat wrangler, and daily dark chocolate eater who enjoys nature walks even though she lives in a city.
