Writing Portfolio

As a content writer and poetry and prose enthusiast, I am constantly looking for stories that need to be told. These days, I am working on writing and publishing articles on the topics of adoption, education, and lifestyle. As a writer, I see every piece of writing as a learning opportunity and place to gain meaningful feedback. At the heart of all the stories that I tell there is always there is a mix of uplifting voices, creativity, and advocacy. 

These past two years, I’ve worked as an educator and high school ELA teacher. As an educator, I have over 4 years of experience of teaching and tutoring writing through helping others tell their stories in an impactful way. It has always been important to me to pass on the power of storytelling to others – especially to those whose voices are typically not featured in traditional media. In addition, my identity as a Chinese adoptee and educator empowers me to share stories of communities of color and marginalized voices.

In my creative writing experience I’ve participated in both undergraduate and graduate level workshops, as well as community writing groups. Collaborating with other writers has helped me grow as a writer and has helped me mold my drafts into something more concrete. I love meeting other writers in the community and hope to meet more of you through this site!
