Bio

I am an artist, philosopher, and self-taught designer creating cultural corrections in our leading industries. Amid my senior year existential crisis, I curiously read about UX etiquette and the possibility of designing a moral future soothed my soul. This led me to fervently prototype mobile and web products responding to current issues. These have now evolved into essays, designs, and art. Presently, I aim to find a balance in professional work and artistic development within WGI's community.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

I will be WGI’s premier philosophizing artist; as an aesthetician and universal humanist, I instill vibrance and sensitivity into desaturated scenes. I consider both the promises and perils of society with my work to re-engineer a culturally compassionate future that invites humanism, moral introspection, and appreciation of quotidian realities.

I am an artist, philosopher, and self-taught designer creating cultural corrections in our leading industries. Amid my senior year existential crisis, I curiously read about UX etiquette and the possibility of designing a moral future soothed my soul. This led me to fervently prototype mobile and web products responding to current issues. These have now evolved into essays, designs, and art.

1. What's the most courageous thing you've ever done?

Major in philosophy and art as the daughter of a traditional immigrant family and use my degrees to enter the over-saturated, competitive, and inflated design industry. Although my family has always shown support, confidence in my life’s direction has always been difficult to come by. It is a constant battle of trying to prove to them and myself that this long-winded off-road path will lead me to success on my terms.

2. How are creativity and innovation related?

Creativity is the root of innovation. While creativity generates original ideas, innovation cultivates and implements these ideas into something valuable. Creativity begins as an abstract and formless seed; innovation takes this seed and waters, grows, and gardens it.

3. Why do companies need clarity and creativity?

Companies need clarity and creativity to crystallize their vision and mission. Clarity crisply communicates the impact and message to their consumers, clients, and internal team. Creativity generates an iridescence to the company, remixed by the amalgamation of strategies, styles, and perspectives. With creativity and clarity, companies shine collectively in unison with precision, direction, and purpose.

4. You have 30 minutes of free time. What do you do with it?

I document ambient experiences, emotions, environments, habits, patterns, and ideas using any medium: a notebook, sketchbook, camera, flashcards, voice memos, Notion, etc. I do this because I believe self-reliance ignites individual and societal transformation, but in order to do so, one must know themselves truthfully. Journaling and documenting to learn about myself and my world is the favorite practice of self-reliance.

5. What is one risky and bold goal in life you have? Or, if you could dedicate your life to solving one problem, what would it be?

I want my work to be the catalyst of a new cultural movement that demands to be deepened, expanded, and explored such as the works of Duchamp, Eleanor Antin, Rei Kawakubo, Ai Weiwei, John Cage, Legacy Russell. I am dedicated to using my creativity as a weapon that spear-heads reactions against conventional norms. The goal is to breed a new culture with a manifesto that breaks the nihilistic and stale “way it has always been done” and instead instills a brighter future.

6. Explain your creative process

First, I develop focus, compassion, and insight with a breathing or mind-body-moving meditation. Then, feed my pseudo-DJ persona to curate or find the right mix to grind and vibe to. From there, it’s 55% researching for all the right resources, 35% of experimenting, and 10% sprinting those last few flow-state moments constructing, deconstructing, then reconstructing all that I hunted and gathered.

7. What is the best advice that you have been given?

Find balance! During my yoga instructor training, I discovered how suffering is rooted in imbalance. Since then, I practice aligning all of my dimensions of wellness to unfold my life with ease and fluidity. I find that in this balance, equanimity and appreciation seeps holistically throughout all aspects of my life.

8. What is your definition of creativity?

An individual’s non-stop performance of ripped-off knowledge, character, and emotions presented as a facade that can never truly be zippered off. Creativity is the manifestation of individuality that bleeds into any form; it is recollections of the past, a once conceptualized future, and learned experiences evolved into layers unique to the individual.

9. What 10 songs are on your favorite playlist right now?

Murmures - Flora Yin-Wong (Immersed back into a museums) Decompression - Harrison BDP (Bath, weed, candles) Last Bloom - Floating Points (Modularly sexy) Feeling Good - Laurent Garnier (Caffeine not needed) No Warehouse Needed - 90 Process (Rave in my bedroom) D Flaw - Elka (Femme energy crystalized) Wordy Rappinghood - Tom Tom Club (Activates inner-child) I’m Doing Fine - Moodymann (To my family) Woo - Erykah Badu (Embodies my swag) Q.E3 Mermaids - Oliver Coates (I'm a Pisces)

10. How do you want people to remember you?

I want to be remembered as a vivacious artist that can turn poison into powerful poise–to strike and inspire people to blossom hardships and sufferings into something viscerally raw, moving, and alive
