She has received awards from the Poetry Foundation and the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, and her work has been featured by the Huffington Post, PBS NewsHour, Feministing, Angry Asian Man, and more. She has been a finalist at multiple national poetry slams, and now travels across the country teaching poetry in schools as a teaching artist with Project VOICE. She lives in the biggest city in the smallest state.
