Hello! My name is Kimberley Wong, and I am a 21 year old soul living in Vancouver, BC, Canada, on the unceded ancestral territories of the Coast Salish people, namely the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, Squamish, and Sto:lo peoples. My interests surrounding intersectional feminism piqued in high school, when I realized the difference between the way people saw and categorized me versus my white friends, based on things that I could not control or change. I understood at a young age, as many do, that my race and gender are the first things that people see, and that this makes me susceptible to different kinds of oppression (but I never called it that). I deemed this feeling as unchangeable and inevitable, until I learned about intersectional feminism. At last, I had a word to describe the experiences that I had lived that shaped the way I walk through life. This discovery was empowering for me, to say the least, and it has evolved into a way of thinking and means of living that allows me to see a plethora of issues through an intersectional perspective of love, to see people as fellow flawed individuals with diverse and complex backgrounds, and to meet amazing friends who feel like family.
