writing elsewhere

Writing has become a process of healing, in itself, as well as a way to connect to and reach others. My writing and interviews span the personal and academic realms from my joy at sharing musings as a columnist to more serious inquiries as an academic.


The Equal’s Record

In 2012, I became a columnist for The Equal’s Record, where I write a bi-weekly column titled: Of Memories and Loss. Below are a few favorites from the column.
