. “In 2013, I had a miscarriage. It was an unexpected pregnancy but my husband and I were excited about the possibilities. At the 8 week OB/GYN appointment, which I attended alone, the doctor paused during the un-anticipated ultrasound.  She went to find another doctor and I knew something was wrong. They confirmed the fetus showed stalled growth and that it was no longer a viable pregnancy. Up until that moment, I didn’t make much of the pregnancy, playing down the implication on our lives. So it was a bit unexpected when tears welled and I began to cry while reclined on the doctor’s table.  I went home and pushed away any feelings, and rationalized that how can I deeply mourn something that I hardly had a chance to bond with.  My husband and I never really talked about this and the grieving process was as silent as the miscarriage.⠀
⠀
In early 2017, I surprisingly found out that I was pregnant. Although not completely planned, we were intentionally not using contraception and had discussions about starting a family, and from his prompting, green-lighted a baby as a welcomed possibility.  When I found out I was pregnant, I was overjoyed- excited to think about the future. I felt more prepared this time. My miscarriage helped me to focus on my health and prepare physically.  What I was unprepared for was my husband’s reaction.”

There are three moments that I knew would change my life the second they happened: getting hired by @culturejedi to help start what became the Center for @mediajustice, meeting my homie for life @juan21stcentury, and starting IVF with the doctor who first brought the procedure to the Caribbean. Getting into the @jackjoneslitarts 2019 retreat is now the fourth. Yah, I feel like my life just leveled up! 🍀🌟🎉💃🏽 Thank you to @cheemobile for fully funding the Yi Dae Up Fellowship for Asian American prose writers and to Kima Jones and the whole wonderful Jack Jones Literary Arts team. .

Heeeey check out what Judge @melissafebos had to say about my essay “Unbroken Water,” which she chose as the winner of the 2019 Penelope Niven Prize in Creative Nonfiction. It’s an amazing and humbling thing when another writers connects with your words and when you get to feel seen and bridge with others through such a solitary art as writing. Congratulations to all the other 2019 #internationalliteraryaward winners @lauralminor
@elizabeth.edelglass
@jamaicabaldwin
Toni Plummer
Sara Phipps and thank you to the @centerforwomenwriters for all their support of women and nonbinary writers over the years. #writerslife #writersofinstagram #writinglife #writingcommunity #writerscommunity #womenwriters #womenwhowrite #womensrights

So much of my life has been shaped by the years I spent building some of the foundations of communications practice and organizational infrastructure of the Center for Media Justice alongside @culturejedi And @amy.sonnie  It wasn’t easy work but it was rewarding as hell and a small part of me grew more whole with each moment of building the capacity of targeted communities to speak for themselves. Happy 10th anniversary to the Center for Media Justice and here’s to decades more because we all deserve the freedom to communicate, to organize, to share our perspectives, to CHOOSE, to re-enter, to dissent, and to have the infrastructure we need to be heard (am I right @teamreframe?)
