about me

Student, editor, reader, writer, daydreamer currently living and learning on the unceded, ancestral, occupied territories of Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, and Squamish peoples.

Currently completing my BA English Literature Honours, with a minor specialization in Asian Canadian & Asian Migrations Studies.

My poetry has appeared in LooseLeaf Magazine, Rising Phoenix Review, and in the captions of my instagram account. I have been involved with Tributaries journal as a Founding Editor/Director, Caitlin Press as an Editorial Assistant, and the UBC Women’s Centre as a coordinator/collective member. I have also done event material design in the form of collaborative zines, pins/buttons, and posters.

Current projects include editing, design, and layout for two community print publications, to be launched in late summer.
