About the Author – Kathy Pham

Kathy Pham sitting on the lily pads

My name is Kathy. I’m a millennial who writes, sketches and builds communities – online and offline. I’ve been a moderator of a 4,000+ member Facebook group with interests on social change and grassroots activism to a resident assistant who’s planned both intimate and large scale events for the 13,000 UCLA students who reside on campus.

I also help organize music showcases and networking events with my friends at Kollaboration. In my spare time, I enjoy frequenting museums, attending improv shows, and blasting “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” on repeat. I’m able to converse in English, Russian, basic Vietnamese, and some French — having studied abroad through State Department initiatives and through the Russian Flagship Program at UCLA.

I’ve been sharing my thoughts online since the heyday of Xanga, Blogger, and Neopets, where I honed my HTML/CSS skills. I’ve also been with Mochi Magazine for eight years, starting off as the web director then contributing as a writer. You can check out what else I’ve done at → What Does Kathy Do?.
