Course: BA Communication Research
Favorite book: The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy. I first read this novel for a class back in high school and it has always stuck with me. Roy tackles issues of gender, race, and class with such a unique writing style.
Favorite film: Portrait of a Woman on Fire dir. CĂ©line Sciamma. It subverts the typical male gaze found in films that depict love stories between queer women.
Favorite media practitioner: Mike Mills (a film director). Watching his works make me feel like I'm watching films made especially for me.
Favorite singer: Taylor Swift. I grew up to her songs and they continue to provide me with comfort, no matter what circumstance I'm in.
Favorite website: Pinterest. It operates like a social media site with thematized "boards" wherein you can pin different images, gifs, and videos.
Favorite food: Kinilaw with rice. It's a comfort food that my mom cooks really well.
Hobbies: Reading and sewing
