Bio: "Those of us with the power to speak must speak" -Staceyann Chin College student doing some reflecting and soul-searching. Will occasionally write about the immigrant diaspora, sexuality, religion, social justice, loss, and offer advice. Most of the time it will be scrambling for answers to questions I don't know the answers to. I write as a way to express what otherwise might be forgotten in passing. I write to heal, I write to forgive, and I write for equality. Thanks for reading about bits and bobs of my little life. Keep on smiling. Profile picture is a series of body art photos done by Chinese artist Huang Yan by the way. Feel free to look him up if you're curious.

    Hello! I was just bouncing around looking at other peoples blogs and I came across yours when I typed “social justice” the search tag. I am also a college student doing some soul searching…. and I am starting because of a class that I am currently taking, “Women and Violence” class…which is why I started my blog….could you swing by and check it out, share with your friends….I only have one post, it is about my experience with violence, even though I am not the only woman to experience it….ANYHOW! I look forward to reading more of your postings!

      Thank you for reading my blog! I checked out yours and I have to say you are very brave to put yourself out there, and I know you will reach people with similar experiences to yours.
      I hope blogging helps you get closer to healing.
      Your poem is beautiful, by the way. I think it celebrates everything worth celebrating and so much more in womanhood and speaks out of pain to create beauty. Thank you for sharing your experiences.
