My Story

I am a writer from South Ozone Park, Queens. My hobbies include eavesdropping on a Lefferts Boulevard-bound A train and doodling on the Q37 bus. When I lost my grandparents in 2016, reading and writing poetry helped me process my grief. I hope I can offer writing workshops to people looking for a nourishing and inclusive space to explore and share their stories. My writing has been published in P...
I am a writer from South Ozone Park, Queens. My hobbies include eavesdropping on a Lefferts Boulevard-bound A train and doodling on the Q37 bus. When I lost my grandparents in 2016, reading and writing poetry helped me process my grief. I hope I can offer writing workshops to people looking for a nourishing and inclusive space to explore and share their stories. My writing has been published in Poetry, Kweli, Papercuts, Open City Magazine, No, Dear Mag, and QC Voices. A former Asian American Writers’ Workshop Open City fellow, I received my BA in English from SUNY Oswego and an MA in American studies from Columbia University. I also hold an MFA in fiction writing from Queens College, CUNY, and I am one of fifteen Queens-based artists commissioned by Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning to create site-specific art work for Jamaica Flux 2021: Workspaces and Windows.
