Hi! I’m Tulip. I’m a writer, reader, and lover of all things romantic and all things pasta. I’m passionate about creating dialogues about race, gender, and how to escape the patriarchal constraints of America today.
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.
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) 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 stories 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 female experience.
Voicefull isn’t meant to be just a book blog – it’s my way of recalibrating how I present myself to the world.
