This incredible woman, Amaya, submitted a one-page piece of writing to NPR’s local Perspective series. Her submission – a short piece dedicated to her beloved grandfather, centered around the subject of grief – was selected. Listeners located in Northern California will be able to tune into NPR tomorrow, March 10th, to hear her read it. For those of you not near a radio or located outside North America can follow this link to stream it online.
Amaya is a writer, an actor, a musician, a Capoeira badass, and a dancer, and we have known each other since we were 13. I am excessively proud of her and consider myself lucky to call her a friend. For more of her writing, please check out and follow her blog.
