Welcome. My name is Arissa. An avid writer and advocate, I enjoy telling stories and constantly questioning the status quo. 

The multiple expressions on these pages have become a way for me to consolidate my personal art, which encompasses written, visual, and spiritual realms. It is my intention to share my work in the hopes of further fostering communities of change making individuals.

My desire to see and do everything has led to a void that is only filled by constant movement through places, languages, and experiences. Whether my own back yard or the mangrove forests of Bangladesh, this desire has led me to people and places that have shaped and altered my perception of this one precious life.

These are pieces of my journey that I am happy to share.

We are more than just thoughts.
