I started working on American Voices in 2012, interviewing modern immigrant women around New York. I create and perform monologues out of their verbatim interview transcripts, each focusing on a different facet of displacement, identity, and belonging. I perform each piece, unifying their voices and experience through my own.

American Voices is an ongoing short film series. Follow for updates. For more information, or to be interviewed, please contact me.
