About my writing
I love to write short stories, poems and reflective thought-pieces inspired by my own experiences and things I care about. I also paint occasionally but it’s mostly me just playing with acrylic and paintbrushes until something vaguely artistic materializes.
This blog is an endeavour to put the art in articulate, one entry at a time.
What do I care about?
I care about the people I love, who have supported me and given me the space to grow while always pushing me to become a better version of myself. I care deeply about issues related to gender, sexuality and mental illness.
I graduated with a degree in political science and a minor in philosophy. The themes that intrigue me the most revolve around power and meaning-making. I thrive on exploring different perspectives and ways of ‘seeing’ these issues, especially through visual and pop culture.
What do I do for fun?
For fun, I enjoy reading, writing and watching quirky music videos. I love visiting museums, exhibitions and visual culture blogs to tickle my brain.
I also enjoy coffee, alcohol and spicy food (but not necessarily consumed in that order).
