Had a super fun 4 years at @girlsskatebrisbane but this April a lot has changed in the world, especially work wise and in terms of personal needs, so made the decision to step down now as co-admin.
Next up I need to concentrate on family plus keep working on my craft and skills as a writer and sociology researcher (including but not limited to skateboarding projects) and volunteer work for various communities. This includes dedicating energy towards supporting the Asian Australian community in a time when racism against us is increasing such as documented on the ABC and on SBS. I am also dedicating time towards my adopted Vietnamese community as we move through the 45th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War, and think through what that means for us in terms of looking after each other and our searches for or care for surviving Vietnamese relatives, ties in Vietnam and within the Viet diaspora.
Big love to legends @evieryder and @torasworld and OG @s0phiar Will always be super proud and stoked at co-founding our city’s biggest girls skate network together with you and all the volunteers such as Millie, Lily, Tam, Georgia – the list is long and wonderful. Hope to see girls scene keep growing on the ground, and so much love for all who make it so great now. You all rule. So will new skaters joining in. DM Tora at GSB at @girlsskatebrisbane if volunteering there interests you – opening up the door and having fresh input and ideas will keep things thriving and connecting us all to old and new friends, and these legends will show you the ropes.
Keen to support and will be collaborating on projects with everyone in the near future, let’s all help each other stay safe and cared for in the present xo
