About this submission
My work has women at the helm, and in many instances they are also immigrants who are navigating a new culture but finding ways to infuse it with their own. They are women who have experience pain or trauma that has lingered within them to shape how they view and interact with the world. They seek something that perhaps cannot be fulfilled nevertheless, they don't believe their efforts are in vain. There is a healing or reckoning they are in pursuit of that seems to have been created by generations of women before them.
