“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”

Toni Morrison

By day I am a communications manager at the Faculty of Arts, in the University of British Columbia. But on the weekends, I take pen to paper to work on a wide range of writing projects—from literary essays to long-form journalism.

Creative Non-Fiction

This anthology is a compilation of Ricepaper Magazine submissions—short stories, poetry, and nonfiction by writers of Asian descent from across the world. The theme which binds each piece is “belief,” a notion personal to each individual sharing a piece of themselves in their works. My essay “Between Word and Mouth” was published in this collection.

This is first issue of Room to directly recognize those of us who socialize, learn, pay attention, feel, and think outside of “normal.” In these pages, luminous writers and artists challenge what neurotypical readers may think they know about experiences with autism, brain injury, ADHD, anxiety, mental illness, and all kinds of cognitive differences. My essay “The Half-Word” was published in this volume.

Every year, The Writer’s Studio and SFU Publications co-publish emerge, showcase of the writing of students in the Writer’s Studio. My essay “Selfish Love” was published in the 2018 edition of the anthology.

Journalism

My writing covers a wide range of complex topics, from how we can create Feminist cities in an effort to revolutionize urban life for social equality and justice, to what it means to apply the principle of radical empathy in the context of healthcare.
