My Micro-Essay to be published in anthology "Nonwhite and Woman" Sept 2022


Just found out that a 300 word micro-essay I wrote, "Auntie's House," will appear in the anthology, "Nonwhite and Woman," coming out from Woodhall Press in September 2022 and edited by Darien Hsu Gee and Carla Crujido. I didn't even know micro-essay was a thing, but it is now my favorite genre. https://www.woodhallpress.com/nonwhite-and-woman

Art Installation proposal for Science Gallery Detroit exhibition, “TRACKED & TRACED"

Just found out my art installation proposal, "Beyond Vincent Chin: Legacies of Asian American Activism and Art," received a very favorable ranking and was put on a limited wait list (back in March, lol) for the Science Gallery Detroit exhibition, “TRACKED & TRACED." So exciting! Even though I also just found out (today, July) that they won't be able to go into the wait list pool. Still, this feels promising to me.
