[Back to Portfolio]

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.
