A writer, scholar, and activist, I use words to penetrate the world around me with insightful and sometimes cheeky perspectives. I see stories in my head in a cinematic fashion and turn my passions into creative content.
While a pen and paper are dear old friends I keep by my side, I've made social media my home turf. I recently started my own web-zine called The Lilin, which features a variety of different pieces from pieces from movie reviews, critiques of internet culture, to a psychoanalytic analysis of a 90s anime, all presented from an intersectional feminist perspective. I can compose intricate and engaging op-ed style articles that are sure to command attention. If you're looking for more narrative-style content, have a look at some of my published and self-published short stories while I try to perfect my future best-selling epic in my head.
And when I'm not banging my fingers into a keyboard or getting pen-ink smudges all over my palms, I'm a relentless activist with intersectional leadership skills used to fight the good fight for women's issues, LGBTQIA rights, anti-racism, and community building. I'm well-versed in a number of social justice issues and have directly worked to organize events (music festivals, mixers, comedy shows, guest speakers, campaigns) to spread awareness for causes such as reproductive rights, anti-police brutality, transgender acceptance, and combating street harassment. I strive for inclusiveness, diversity, and representation in building safe spaces and communities.
I've chosen to navigate young-adulthood with wide-eyes and fearless dreams. Let me know how I can contribute to your magazine/blog/grassroots organization/daily life by getting into contact with me!
