My journey as a storyteller and healer began with a hot bowl of jook (rice porridge). Food was the first vessel that allowed story to pour into and around me. Over the past decade, I have developed an analysis of food justice that is grounded in cultivating healing and nurturing relationships with our bodies, our community, and our environmental systems.
My equity work continues to evolve as I deepen my practices in nonviolent communication, mindfulness, and embodied healing. I bring imagination, empathy, and playfulness to everything I create and offer to others. My identities as a 4th generation Chinese American womxn, parent, care worker, and anti-capitalist play a heavy hand in how I curate space. I also recognize that my privileges as a wealthy, cis-gendered, able bodied, citizen of the US creates limitations on my ability to know everyone's lived experience intimately.
In this season of my life, I am cultivating belonging, (re)learning liberating models of love - both with self and others, and honing my divine feminine energy. I am especially passionate about creating anti-patriarchal spaces that are intersectional, joyful, and generative. I am most in my element when I am floating in water.
