“I saw the suffering and I let myself feel it… I saw the injustice and was compelled to do something about it. I changed from being a nun who only prayed for the suffering world to a nun with my sleeves rolled up, living my prayer.” —

“For me, there’s a power in tracking the way that fictions are made, the way that lived experience becomes material for fiction. And for me that requires a first person who’s me and not me so that I can kind of make the process of the way lived experience gets transposed into fiction a part of the work.” —
