My name is Vanessa and I am a fourth-year undergraduate student researcher pursuing a double-major in International Studies and French at the University of California, Irvine.
I come from a Taiwanese-Chinese-American background and my pronouns are she, her, and hers.
As a student, I am interested in understanding how diverse identities are being included in the scope of global society and seeing the world through the eyes of the most vulnerable populations.
As a researcher, I seek to examine the efficacy of gender mainstreaming initiatives put in place by international organizations and how we can bring more humility back into global politics.
As a writer, I promise transparency and vulnerability.
As a human, I promise kindness.
Thank you for stopping by.
