My name is Joanna, and I’m a twenties-something follower of Jesus and a writer learning how to let His love vibrate in the words I write.
I locate myself as a multi-ethnic woman of color (black, Latinx, with Chinese heritage) with a heart for engaging issues of social justice, cultural diversity, identity politics, and how faith weaves into all these.
Nature-lover, enthusiastic devotee of writing poetry on crowded trains, and eager explorer of other cultures (including that of Pop), I hope to write about whatever burdens my heart and shake up the world a little bit.
Thanks for reading. Thanks for leaning in. Comments and feedback are always welcome, as I recognize that I am leaping into dialogues that have existed long before me and will continue long after me.
God bless you. Riot on!
