Hope Fa-Kaji is a third generation Chinese American and fourth generation Japanese American, and one of five sisters. Partially due to growing up in a big family, she didn't always feel a personal sense of urgency to learn her family history. However, after the passing of her grandparents, her parents became the primary family historians. Fa-Kaji's work attempts to think through the stories that are now passed down to her generation, alongside larger questions of identity and justice. She works as an equipment engineer in Richardson, TX and has pieces upcoming in Academy of the Heart and Mind.
