Hi there! My name is Alyse and I’m a Chicago-based writer and educator. I am a recent Master’s in Teaching graduate and former high school ELA teacher. Previously, I received my B.A. in English w/Creative Writing and Communications from the University of Washington.
In my free time I love to create content about lifestyle and my experiences as a Chinese adoptee, as well as share diverse perspectives in education. I currently work with local adoptees in Chicago through an organization I co-founded, Adoptees of Chicago, as a Youth Activities Coordinator. You can find posts on all of these topics and more on my blog.
As a writer, I focus on diversity and inclusion, empathy-driven listening, and user-focused content. I’m currently open to freelance writing opportunities and collaborations, which you can learn more about under the freelance writing tab.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope we can create something together soon!
