Life and Experiences

Who she is and how she got here.

Though Teirra was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand, she moved to America alone at the age of 15 to pursue Musical Theater. She first explored non-fiction writing in high school when she wrote and performed her own one-woman show. Between 2010-2018, she worked as a freelance writer, salesman and performer in California, Boston and New York. 

Eventually fed up with saying other people's words, Teirra left show business and returned to Thailand to write about real things happening in her home country. Quickly learning that “truth is stranger is stranger than fiction,” she became obsessed with telling impactful, bizarre and astonishing true stories. She is especially interested in shedding light on the unseen and giving voice to those that are too often ignored or overlooked.
