For as long as I have been on the internet I have been writing and blogging in some fashion, whether as “microblogging” on Twitter and Tumblr or writing long blog posts about my day in WordPress. Though many of these early blogs have been lost to the internet ruins, the desire to write has remained. In 2013, I studied abroad in Sydney, Australia and took an Introduction to Creative Writing course. I’ve been writing and seeking new avenues to share my work ever since. As an MFA candidate at Iowa State University, I primarily write about topics I’m most passionate about: food, environmentalism, science, feminism, sexuality, and being Filipino American.
