Writing Portfolio

As a writer and poet, 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. 

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. As a doctoral student, my research interests are: digital rhetoric, composition pedagogy, and Asian American rhetoric. Below, you can find some samples of my writing in various genres including: blog articles, academic writing, digital website copy, and featured engagements.
