A spoken word piece concerning Asian hate crimes and the feeling of being the next victim.
Carmen Tan is a student living in New York. She finds interest in the everyday lives of others and thinks of herself as a curious person. Considering the world is so vast, it’s her goal to explore as much as she can. She finds freedom in writing and expresses herself through poetry, world building and creating stories. Finishing those stories are another subject, though; perhaps someday in the future you’ll find a book with her name on the front cover! She currently lives with her family in Brooklyn and an ice cream-stocked freezer.

Hi, thanks for visiting my page! I’m a born and raised New Yorker who found lots of comfort from reading books at a young age. My pieces are all very close to my heart and carry meaning with me. I write to send important messages to my readers such as being fragile because we’re all human or about arising social topics. I write so that anyone who reads my work feels less alone and not like the odd one out.
Some people would run ten miles instead of confessing to their crush. Some people would never let that ridiculous thought enter their brain at all. If I don’t ask, I’ll never know the answer.
