An interview with Keidra Chaney

I asked one of my best friends, Keidra, my patented interview questions.

What is favourite city in the world?

I know I should say my hometown, Chicago but that would be a lie. It’s a tossup between New Orleans and Tokyo.

What’s the most unusual item you take everywhere you go? 

So I have to take a moleskine journal with me EVERYWHERE I go to take notes and lists, but that’s not unusual per se. I haven’t traveled in two years *sob* but when I do I take a small puppy k-pop plush doll with me. He’s seen a lot on my instagram.

Why do you do what you do?

I honestly believe in digital technology as a way to connect people, create community and get the resources they need to thrive. As much as I complain about and critique online culture and the tech industry I really do believe that the people behind the tools and technology can do amazing things with it for social justice and social change and I do what I do to support those people and the work that they do.

Where do you go to relax?

I go to the beach. Or I get lost in my own head through reading a book or listening to music I love.

69, 280, or 420? 

420, easily.

*munches on an edible*

How do you say goodbye in your culture?

Bye!! Or “peace!” But I don’t usually say that.
