Emily Kay Tan is a teacher, entrepreneur, podcaster, and writer. Born in the South, she grew up on the east coast and began her careers on the west coast. Silenced as a child, her opinions, comments, or existence didn't seem to matter to her relatives. She grew to be a relatively quiet person. Though she is often quiet, she has much to say. Though there often seems to be something stuck in her throat, she hungers to express lots. At midlife with more than half her life over, she finally found two ways to let that voice out fully! By expressing her voice as a podcaster, she is tickled with joy. By sharing her voice as a writer, she finds meaning in a life she never thought she had.
