Meet our Spring 2018 E-Magazine Team
I’m Harvest Keeney. I was adopted from Deyang (Sichuan Province) when I was fourteen months old. I grew up in a very small city located in California’s central valley.
Reflecting on my identity as a Chinese American adoptee did not surface till my senior year of high school. It was then that I began to think more about the complexity of my story and its influence on my life.
Currently, I am a freshman at UC Santa Barbara, aspiring to major in Film and Media Studies and minor in Asian American Studies. With whatever career that I take in the future, I hope that I can help to further Asian representation in the media, and also bring more awareness to adoption and its multidimensional aspects.
Anna Atoria is a second year Adelphi University MFA candidate specializing in fiction. She also writes poetry and essays. Born in Nanning and adopted at seven months old, she often writes about her life as a Chinese-born, but Italian and Polish-American raised girl and adoptee.
Hannah was born in Jiangxi, China and grew up in a small town outside of Nashville, Tennessee. She recently moved into her first post-college apartment with one of her best friends, two dogs, and a cat. When she's not working as a technical writer, Hannah spends her time watching Netflix, thinking about all the books she hasn't read, and playing with her pets.
