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?
*munches on an edible*
How do you say goodbye in your culture?
Bye!! Or “peace!” But I don’t usually say that.
