It feels very surreal to share that an essay I wrote was selected by Alicia Elliott as the winner of Briarpatch Magazine’s annual creative writing contest. Also super cool that my hardworking sister Kayla Isomura won in the photography category with an excerpt of her very powerful photo series, The Suitcase Project! 😍
Thank you to friends who encouraged me to enter and who read previous drafts of my piece!
update: The piece is now available to read online.
