My name is Michelle and I grew up in the Bay Area. I’m American born Chinese. I grew up playing sports such as basketball at the age of 6. Growing up I’ve explored lots of things and that’s when I stumbled across poems. Writing poems helps me heal. I’m currently doing photography and capturing memories with my friends so that as I grow older, I can look back at these times, and be able to hold on to the joy, the pain and experiences of the past.
