When I was 19 years old, I moved to London for my studies.
I ended up staying there 11 years.

Faced with a new culture and a whole new place to explore, I often walked around with a notebook, jotting down poem-like thoughts as a way to capture and mend the sense of isolation mixed with awe that I was feeling. 
Fifteen years later, I stumbled on these poems and felt compelled to interact with them in a new way. I recorded them and laid them out in type as a way of reconnecting with the person that I had been and, through this project, offering her the soothing that my current, somewhat healed, self can give. These are some of the poems that resulted from that journey.
