Expressing herself through poetry

Transcrições disponíveis nas seguintes línguas:

I have never stopped writing from the time I was quite young. And I think it – I was very shy, you know, child. I think that Asians – many Asian Americans – not able to really express yourself verbally, and so you’re always kind of writing and keeping it within yourself, and I think that that probably has helped a lot. And – and so it kind of surprises people when they read my poetry, because they’re kind of sharp, ironic, sometimes quite pointedly critical, and so forth. They don’t – had no idea that I was harboring these thoughts in my head [laughs].
