First off, thanks so much for reading my blog!
My name is Laiseng (sounds like I lie to you, and sang a song), and I was born and raised in the Bay Area. I graduated from sunny Southern California school, Scripps College and I just moved back to the Bay Area two years ago. It’s such a strange feeling to be back in the Bay, but I also am so happy I get to be close to my family and see my nieces and nephews grow up. I was a Politics and International Relations major, and I’m super passionate about social justice – in particular, environmental justice issues.
Last year, I pulled out my sketch book and wrote down lots of words. Healing. Writing. Cooking. Gardening. Zero waste. Politics. Travel. Creativity. I realized that for the last two years I’ve been on auto-pilot and I haven’t made as much space as I would like to for the creative parts of my life. I remember when I was younger, I’d write all of these “song lyrics” and poems, and just draw for hours on end. What happened to that me?! So, to channel more of myself I decided that starting a blog to write about what I love could be fun!
So here is my blog, and I hope you get to know me a little bit more. 🙂
