I’m kind of a feminine mystic, so addictedtopossibility comes from my belief that anything literally is possible. In the course of my life so far, I have come to understand that all the truths I held most dear are actually not true at all. It may or may not be true that we are all queer, countries are not real, race is not real, and science is little more than sanctified religion. There are no coincidences. It is possible.
The Desi community in a city in the American South is a weird place to have grown up, and it definitely colors my view of things, no pun intended. In a lot of ways, this blog is a smoke signal to all the other woke women of color who are tired of their incorrigible communities, who would like assurance that they are not crazy and that someone out there hears them. I’ve been there. I hear you.
My name is Leonie, I use she/her/hers pronouns, and I am the author of all the content on this website. I was raised in Tampa, FL, and I am University of Florida alum. I graduated last year with my master’s degree in Education from UMass Amherst. In the past, I have worked with Asian Pacific Islander American Affairs at UF, the Yuri Kochiyama Cultural Center at UMass Amherst, and Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Atlanta. I am greatly influenced by critical theorists, critical pedagogues, queer and feminist theorists, and critical race theorists. In my free time, I consume both books and television, and my taste in both frequently makes its way into the content of this blog.
All the writing here is my own. All photos that are not sourced on this website are also my own. I took them myself. Please cite your sources. Thank you for reading.
