Sabrina Im – Portfolio

Sabrina Im is an emerging poet, dabbling artist, and diasporic storyteller. The daughter of Khmer refugees, her work centers on community building, manifesting, and creating social transformations. As a Fellow, she looks forward to using storytelling as a means for mediating and cultivating inter-generational narratives. She hopes to translate the academic jargon of social movements and histories into accessible languages that will mobilize others to explore their creative agency and nurture experimental collaborations. Outside of Public Matters, Sabrina currently works for the Los Angeles Public Library in the International Languages Department. She has also worked for storytelling centered organizations like Studio Revolt, WriteGirl, and with Visual Communications for their LA Asian Pacific Film Festival. Sabrina can often be found exploring the rich cultures and rhythms of Los Angeles at community talks, pop-up exhibits, or reading at open mics. She received her B.A. in World Literature and Cultural Studies from University of California, Santa Cruz.
