About

KC Hong is from a long, long line of Chinese people, but only writes fluently in English. Her accomplishments include making a panda twerk, staging an epic kungfu battle between in-laws, turning lollipops into a theme park, having her words of random happiness sewn into millions of underwear, and passing off as a 12-year-old. When she isn't at work, you may find this part-time asian (aka potato eater) doodling or getting lost. 

Everything after this gets a little long. Enjoy.
