My name is Mika Hernandez. I am a queer Chicana, Yonsei (fourth generation Japanese American), and Korean American. I write, make art, and cook. I also care deeply about and am engaged in radical grassroots community organizing. I was born, raised, and currently live on occupied Chochenyo Ohlone land (Oakland, CA). I hold a Bachelor of Arts from Hampshire College. While there I studied oral history, post-colonial theory, and the socio-cultural importance of food.
I believe that all my work is reflective of my radical politics, the communities around me, and pieces of my identity. This is a place to track and share my creative projects.
