With a grudge against winter, she now calls Los Angeles home but never fails to complain about the heat. She lives with her cats and the succulents from her mom’s garden, daydreaming about her next grocery store run. She writes messy diaspora kids and queer girls with big smiles and big hearts. You can find Trinity on social media as @thetrinitytran on Instagram and Twitter, except for TikTok @eggtarts (because she refuses to retire the username), and otherwise

So Vivi secretly goes to Vietnam for a study abroad program her freshman year of college. She’s determined to figure out why her parents left, and to try everything she’s seen on her favorite food blog, A Bánh Mì for Two.
