Angry Reader of the Week: Franny Choi

"But my heart is everywhere my loved ones are; so, everywhere."

Greetings, internet friends. It is time, once again, to meet the Angry Reader of the Week, spotlighting you, the very special readers of this website. Over the years, I've been able to connect with a lot of cool folks, and this is a way of showing some appreciation and attention to the people who help make this blog what it is. This week's Angry Reader is Franny Choi.

Who are you?

Hermione Granger sun, Aziz Ansari rising, Tina Belcher moon.

What are you?

A poet, a playwright, a teacher, an organizer. Co-host of the podcast Vs., Senior News Editor at Hyphen, Kundiman fellow, member of the Dark Noise collective.

Where are you?

Ann Arbor, Michigan, in my second year in the MFA program at the University of Michigan. But my heart is everywhere my loved ones are; so, everywhere.

Where are you from?

In backwards chronological order: Providence, Atlanta, New Haven, Madison, Minneapolis, and I think I was a fetus for a minute in Seoul.

What do you do?

I read and write and teach poetry. I spend some of my time traveling and reading it out loud to people. I try to water my plants and bake bread once in a while. I feel most like myself when I'm part of an activist community (so I feel not totally like myself at the moment).

What are you all about?

Trying to figure out how to do the most good (for the world, for my communities, for myself) given the particular nexus of identities and positions I occupy. Also cyborgs, abolition, POC interventions in the avant garde, and high-quality winter socks.

What makes you angry?

Institutionalized amnesia about the violent origins of wealth and whiteness.
