Kosoma

Kosoma is an engineering graduate student studying fluvial systems and how to heal them. When she is not doing that, she is drawing comics, making music, or writing poetry.

Her art stems from her life experiences; shaped by the Cambodian diaspora, anxiety, trauma, intersectional feminism, and the steps toward getting “better.”

There’s not much else to say that doesn’t seem forced, but if you want to know more, surely you can figure out a way to ask.
