She holds a dual Bachelor of Arts in Asian Studies and Asian American Studies, and her writing and art have been featured in HAWAII Magazine, Bitter Melon Poetry, Threads That Connect Us, Solrad, and Character Media, among others.

When not drawing or writing, you might find her making handmade noodles and cabbage kimchi or listening to Mitski and Mao Buyi.
