Giyen is a writer, artist, analyst, manager, public servant, designer, mother… and I’ve barely scratched the surface.
Last week, I started a Facebook fundraiser for Everytown for Gun Safety in response to the Saugus High School shooting in Santa Clarita, CA. My niece, a student there, escaped to safety, but two other students were killed, and the shooter — a 16 year-old student — died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
I want to update you about the fundraiser, because something special is happening: people I don’t know are donating.
We’ve hit the halfway point of #NaBloPoMo2019! Here are a few of my favorite #NaBloPoMo2019 posts from this week.
Today, school gun violence touched my family directly. If, like me, you have fear or anger you don’t know what to do with, I invite you to contribute to my fundraiser for Everytown for Gun Safety and to Mitch McConnell’s 2020 opponent, Amy McGrath.
I started blogging before “influencer” was a job description, before social media, before most people knew what a blog was.
In 2004, the idea of sharing the personal details of your life on the Internet was…weird. Getting to know people through their blogs? Even weirder. But that’s what happened, and it was magic.
Today, sharing your life on the Internet is so common people think you’re weird if you don’t do it.
And yet somehow going “back” to blogging feels revolutionary.
