hi there,

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.

My name is Vanessa and I am a program organizer based out of Washington D.C. in the progressive economics space. I’m a creative thinker with an ENFP-T personality and am passionate about uplifting voices of different communities.

I come from a Taiwanese-Chinese-American immigrant background and my pronouns are she, her, and hers.

As a student and researcher, 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 professional, I believe in connecting the structural with the human, and advocating for the rights of women and people of color through policy and organizing.

As a writer, I promise transparency and vulnerability.

As a human, I promise kindness.

Thank you for stopping by.

You can find my professional experiences listed here.
