Claribel Wu is a CMC Resident Illustrator, currently studying English and Modern Culture & Media at Brown University. She's interested in the role of storytelling, both interpersonally and introspectively, as it relates to mindfulness practice and issues of race and society. Claribel spent a summer as the Communications Intern at Center for Mindful Learning, a monastic academy, where she saw the potential for meditation and mindfulness to be a radical force in disrupting old habits and narratives. She's committed to approaching this work with curiosity, critical awareness, and compassion. Claribel feels grateful for and inspired by this opportunity to co-create with the CMC community.
