leaving a trail behind




the wishstudio manifesto

is my intention to hearby make all my wishes known to the universe…

to chase my dreams fearlessly
to live a life of passion and intent
to always practice, learn, and aspire
to be mindful of my needs, desires and actions
to choose acceptance over judgement
to rejoice in my own unique qualities
to speak boldly with my creative voice
to nourish my body with love and goodness
to embrace the positive energy of those who surround me
to make a difference in the live’s of others
to have confidence and faith in the universe
to share light, laughter, love and peace
to not just simply follow a path
but to leave a trail behind.




our vision

*wishstudio* believes…in building an inspiring community where we can gather, connect, create, and grow. by providing this space where self exploration is encouraged and judgment is left behind, we can celebrate the beauty and potential that lies within each of us. the rich tapestry of souls is the foundation that we can build our inner strength upon, find our own unique voice, and also gain insight and inspiration.

*wishstudio* believes…that each of us is on a journey to become our very best self. with mindfulness and passion, we can take steps every day towards living the life of our dreams. our life therefore is our art, our legacy, created to bring more joy to ourselves and ultimately to the world. our stories may be told through our words, our bodies, our work, or our creations, but it is our intention that fuels our light. this light enables us to shine as brightly as possible!

*wishstudio* believes…in recognizing and uniting our collective power, positive influence, and responsibility to help take care of our greater community including ourselves and the world around us. by embracing gratitude as well as care and concern for all, we can create an empowering force for beauty, joy and positive change.


proclaim your wishes and become a part of the wishstudio community today!

The Cost of Selling Belonging

As someone who use to sell belonging and believed I was creating something universally magical , I now have fresh eyes on the harm that I once caused. I understand what can (and was) incredibly healing and impactful for some, was at the same time excluding, marginalizing and undervaluing others. First, to anyone who ever felt like they did not belong to anything I created because they were unable to afford it or felt like they did not have the social capitol to join -  I am sincerely sorry for not seeing you sooner .   To our entire creative community as a whole, I urge us all to think about belonging in new and equitable ways, and to do the work of dismantling these hierarchical structures that leave so many people out of the circle. We all deserve to have access to creativity and belonging, and I'd go so far as to say both are fundamental basic human needs and rights. Selling belonging can look like... Creating spaces and experiences that can only be accessed by buying in at one,

It is my first long distance call following my inquiry with the organization documented to be my first place of entry into the system, found in my Korean records (the acquisition of which is an incredible story in and of itself). It was July 21, 1972 and I was 5 months old. It’s a small miracle the organization still exists, and an even bigger blessing that they took such time and care in searching for information and to talk it all through with me in person. I try not to cry as the call connects. What I learn is a lot of small details about that fateful evening which amount to nothing traceable, but still feel like huge missing pieces of my life. I was left near the entrance around 7pm under a small tree, wrapped in a blanket with only a name scribble
