My Bio

Hi! I’m Quy Ma. Welcome to my About Me story!

The first thing you’re probably wondering is, “How do you say his name?” If we were introducing ourselves to each other in person, you’d probably perk your ears up and listen intently to how I’m saying my name. But since we’re doing this over the internet, I’ll spare you the embarrassment of potentially butchering my name and let you google it! Just kidding, it’s pronounced “kwee” like the word soliloquy and “maw” like the “jaws or throat of a voracious animal,” according to Oxford.

But I digress, you wanted to…

My life till now

Author, in some cafe

Of all the articles I have written on Medium, this is going to be the toughest one. But, let me try.

Hi, I am Vaibhav. I was born and bred in the sun and rains of Bombay. Like any average Indian guy, Cricket was my first love before I got sucked into the rat race. Engineering grad and Finance post-grad, currently stuck in the whirlwind of corporate slavery.

The money I earned helped me to fund my backpacking trips. I found a divine experience hiking on unexplored paths and uncharted territories. …

Hi! My name is Phoebe. Born in 1977, I believe I might be the reincarnated soul of a hippie who died too young. That’s just a theory, but I’m definitely different than most members of my family. (“You’re weird,” as my 12-year-old niece says, to which I always reply, “And proud of it.”)

I was raised on a dairy farm in the Deep South of the U.S., the oldest of four children, by very prim-and-proper parents who created an evangelical bubble of fear that kept me pure as the (un)driven snow until I was 18.

Since then, I’ve been flitting…

Come crash on my boulders

Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I’m not going to make it, but you laugh inside — remembering all the times you’ve felt that way.

My buddy Chuck’s got a way with words, doesn’t he? A real poet. I’m a simpler man than him, so my stories may not trip off your tongue the same, but I bet they’ll be just as colorful.

I’m more excited than a schoolgirl on her first date. This’ll be my first story published in Medium and I hope it’ll make me a million smackers. …


Smashing the patriarchy, narcissism, and religious abuse one story at a time. Author of Chasing Eden a childhood memoir.

I am currently from Portland, Oregon, but I’ve lived in many places. From Washington to Michigan, to Connecticut, to Louisiana. I am from carrying my home within my heart.

I am originally from a little cabin on Whidbey Island, in Washington State, that I called home despite no indoor plumbing during my childhood. …

I’m a man with a dream to save mankind

Good day everyone! My name is Aaditya Rajagopalan. But people rarely call me by my full name. Many people struggle to pronounce my full name, so feel free to call me Aadi! I was born in Edison, New Jersey. I am currently a P1 pharmacy student at the University of the Sciences. I hope to one day become a hospital pharmacist and guide patients on a better path to health and therefore save lives. I enjoy traveling, reading, watching superhero shows (especially marvel shows), playing video games (specifically Xbox one), playing sports, and cooking during my free time.

I live with one foot firmly on each side of the Madonna-Whore Dichotomy.

The Madonna

My professional background is in elementary education. I completed my student teaching in a second-grade classroom in a catholic school, then spent two years working as a fourth-grade teacher with a certain prestigious nonprofit teacher-placement organization.

After stepping away from the public school classroom, I spent a year as a lead teacher in an early learning center.

In 2017, when my husband and I learned we were expecting, I decided to shift my career to virtual learning in order to stay home with our new baby (and also because I’m an…

Chasing the authentic human experience

Photo of the author

Thank you for visiting my page. Like for many writers, the hardest thing to write about is writing about oneself. And while it evokes an uncomfortable proof of self, creating one’s own corner on the world wide web does, indeed, demand some explanation of the self.

I will, however, not bore you with biographical information but rather share with you what goes on in my mind and what moves, delights and fuels me, as this gives you a more accurate idea of what you may expect from my writing.

So let us begin…

Talking or writing about yourself is about as comfortable as a visit to the dentist or if you have lady parts, a visit to the gyno. You know you should do it, but you really don’t want to. At least if you’re an introvert like I am.

I don’t enjoy being the center of attention, but I sincerely believe you need to push at the edges of your comfort zone to grow and experience new things. Also, for most of my life, being different from most people around me, I…
