Stri has lived all over the United States. She moved to Oakland from Honolulu, HI in 2009 to get her MFA in Creative Writing at Mills College. Stri prefers odd numbers to even and at a young age began associating gender and personality traits to numbers, letters, words, and objects. For Wear Your Voice she writes about sex and relationships, currently emerging themes in her daily thoughts and life, and local characters, groups, and happenings. She's also known to snap a few pictures - especially if she spots a fly woman on the street ‘wearing her voice’. Favorite place in Oakland - Mountain View Cemetery. If you were a street in Oakland - Piedmont Avenue If you were a tattoo what would you be and where? - a peacock feather infinity symbol she has tattooed on her left side, running from just below her armpit to just above her thigh.
