Hi! I’m Tulip. I’m a writer, reader, former English teacher, and future librarian. I’m passionate about possibly too many things, including racial and social equity, Asian cooking, and how fanfiction is necessary to the survival of the human race.
After graduating from the University of Virginia in 2013 with a degree in English literature and American government, I joined the Dallas-Fort Worth Corps of Teach For America. My experiences as an educator working for the diverse youth of this country ignited my commitment to uplifting and creating colorful narratives.
I’m currently pursuing my master’s degree in library science at Texas Woman’s University, and cannot wait to begin my work as a public librarian.
Growing up, I can only remember reading a handful of stories that were written by people of color. Voicefull is my attempt to make up for those lost years by understanding narratives beyond the dominant (i.e. white, male, heteronormative, cisgender, neurotypical) paradigm. As a woman of color, I am only just beginning to understand how a lack of inclusive narratives has held me back from presenting my authentic self. By reading and recommending books written by women of color, I intend to reclaim the nuances of my own identity and explore the intersectionality of the never monolithic, always vibrant human experience.
Voicefull is currently on hiatus as I finish my master’s program. I’ll be back soon!
