I am deeply moved by people and their stories. My travels and experiences have lead me to believe that in order to truly connect with people, learning local languages, dialects and cultures are imperative, not only in terms of academic understandings, but to understand people beyond the spoken word, on an emotional and personal level. I carry this with me in life and imbue my work with it.
I speak Vietnamese, Thai, French, Spanish and the beginnings of Isaan (Northeastern Thai dialect) and Laotian. I hope to continue deepening my knowledge of these different communication systems in order to invest in the people around me, and support a multi-local world.
I am passionate about my fiancé, family, empowerment, community, gender, muay thai, words and plant based living.
