About

Hello! My name is Eien! I'm a Junior at Arcadia University, currently studying Graphic Design and working on a minor in Sociology. I'm originally from the Hudson Valley of New York, but have loved traveling since I was young. I'm queer, trans, and mentally ill, but working through all that to have a successful semester abroad! I love studying all forms of art (graphic art, street art, spoken word, stuff like that), writing poetry, and learning about different religions. I'm really into dying my hair crazy colors, getting tattooed, and finding new ways of expressing myself. I'm ready for some shenanigans!

Meters, Buses, and Food

Eien S. March 20, 2015

I think one of the hardest things about being in a foreign country (probably most of them) is trying to use meters when measuring. I'm in an art class on designing spaces for installations and performances; the only project for this class is to build… More

Sydney is An Adventure

Eien S. March 13, 2015

Wow. I can't believe I've been here three weeks. I haven't even been to the beach yet! I only just made a trip into Sydney the other day, though. I didn't know until last week, but Sydney hosts a Queer Mardi Gras every year. It’s apparently a really long… More
