Sketches of the Heart
Welcome! I'm so happy you are here.
Sketches of the Heart (SOTH) are personal essays, stories, writings and memories that have been sketched deep in my heart that I want to share with the world especially my siblings, friends, women of color, and children of immigrant parents. The sketches will reveal my thoughts as a child of war refugee parents, first-generation to attend college, a Hmong-American woman, a higher education educator, and an advocate for a world free of violence.
I want to echo one of my favorite author, Janet Mock, "I hope these experiences will resonate and offer a ray of hope and inspiration. I also hope my stories will offer clarity and pushes you toward beginnings and conclusions of your own so you can live authentically. "
I invite you to discover my authentic self through my writings and stories.
