Hi, I'm Kyunghee.
I tell stories that are honest and true.
I am driven by curiosity & empathy. I believe our stories matter, yours & mine. Writing is my journey in exploring what it means to embrace who we are and each other.
I found poetry in the darkest season of my life. It brought me back to life.
My poems are inspired by my own experiences as a Korean-American 1.5 generation immigrant navigating life. I share to create space for authentic conversations, especially in cultures where vulnerability is not deemed courageous. No shying away from hard conversations here. I talk about identity, culture, family, relationships, and more. The overall themes of becoming & belonging.
I hope these words inspire you to tell your own story, too.
In my monthly blog post, I share reflections and resources on leaning into the seasons - how we can experience joy and light right where we are at.
So glad you are here.
