A LITTLE BIT MORE
In 2009, Jessica started writing and reviewing books but she noticed that there was a lack of representation in books, especially that of Asian-Americans, whether it was a lack of Asian-American authors or characters. Since then, she’s written about representation and diversity in both medicine and literature for Zora, Los Angeles Review of Books and more.
