Kiki is an EdM candidate in Education Leadership, Organizations and Entrepreneurship. She has worked as Student Director for Multicultural Life at Bowdoin College and received her MAT degree at Smith College where she wrote her thesis on bringing anti-racist curriculum to rural schools through Asian American literature. Over the past four years, Kiki has taught as an English teacher at US public high schools and abroad through the Fulbright program. While teaching Romeo and Juliet last year, Kiki was struck that her students believed Romeo killing Tybalt was just. She started desperately asking her classes questions she didn't know the answers to: What is justice? What is freedom? Were Romeo and Juliet truly in love? She is still grappling with these questions.
