I was in high school when I started telling people I was a writer. Of course, I wasn’t really a writer back then. I was a socially awkward teenager who really loved daily journal writing in English and often scribbled lines of poetry in the margins of my Calculus homework (which did not get me extra credit). I believed, however, if I repeated it enough, some day it might feel true.

I have been published in Dan Savage’s It Gets Better: Coming Out, Overcoming Bullying, and Creating a Life Worth Living, Bamboo Ridge’s 100th Anniversary Issue, and was a contributing writer to the Hawaii Women’s Journal. I continue to tell people I’m a writer, in hopes of it one day being true.
