In This Episode
Peuo Tuy is a spoken word poet, fiction fantasy writer, and a creative writing workshop instructor. Her poetry collection, Khmer Girl, is inspired by the traumas of her life, including her family escaping the killing fields of their native Cambodia and enduring the inequities of life as an immigrant in the United States.
Her poetry, written and spoken, educates audiences about both the history and beauties of her Khmer heritage as well as the damage Khmer culture wrought on her self-esteem as a girl and woman.
