A storyteller interested in writing about education, identity, art and culture.
Writes about diaspora identity and its influence on art making.
She is currently an art critic for Design Pataki, storyteller and creative consultant at the Neu Lithium, teaching Spanish to elementary school children in Bangalore while researching tropes and stereotypes in contemporary travel writing through Carry On.
How I Work
Interested in sharing affirmative experiences of the diaspora community and immigrants, her narratives aim to empower and represent. When she is not writing, she is working with audio and publication design. By playing with form and the order in which a reader receives their information, she is working to establish a sensory connection between readers and written text whether its online or in physical form.
