I’ve spent a lot of time reading other people’s stories. I devour memoirs in a single day, and the feelings remain with me for weeks.

Some of the memoirs that I think about still:

The Latehomecomer – Kao Kalia Yang

When Breath Becomes Air РPaul Kalanithi 

First They Killed My Father – Loung Ung

Educated – Tara Westover

Finding common threads in another person’s narrative feeds the part of me that wants to be part of the world.

I want to tell you my story. I want to listen to yours.
