I am indebted to the courageous transnational women of color scholar-activists who come before me, working in the diverse traditions of Black feminism, Latinx/Chincanx feminism, Asian feminism, Indigenous and decolonizing movements, queer theory, and disability studies.
My intellectual elders include Sara Ahmed, M. Jacqui Alexander, Gloria Anzaldúa, Patricia Hill Collins, the Combahee River Collective, Kimberlé Crenshaw, Norman Denzin, W.E.B. DuBois, Richard Fung, Jack/Judith Halberstam, bell hooks, Audre Lorde, Chandra Talpade Mohanty, Aileen Moreton-Robinson, Stella Nkomo, Edward Said, Gayatri Spivak, Shannon Sullivan, Trinh T. Minh-ha, and many, many more thinkers whose name evades me now but whose writings transformed.
I would also not have found my strength without my sisters in resistance Deborah Brewis, Sadhvi Dar, and Angela Martinez Dy.
My academic training was guided by Leanne Cutcher and David Grant at the University of Sydney whose examples of integrity, kindness, and humility continue to inspire my work.
My business training is guided by Kelly Diels and the generous and visionary culture makers who form her programs, FLORA and Feminist Copywriting.
