I’m a writer and current undergraduate student at the University of Virginia, where I’m pursuing majors in English and Medieval Studies (don’t get me started on visionary female mystics) and a minor in art history! I’m also a second-generation Vietnamese-American, and as a critic I’m really interested in exploring how Asian women are represented in coming-of-age narratives and speculative fiction. Some of my favorite films are Black Narcissus, Picnic at Hanging Rock, Kiki’s Delivery Service, In the Mood for Love, and The Handmaiden.
In my free time, I’m trying to teach myself the basics of graphic design and I like making collages. You can find more of my work here!
