Bio

See Lo was born in Rochelle, Illinois and was mostly raised throughout Wisconsin. She’s considered the middle child out of ten children between with just her parents. However, all that changed when her parents divorced and her father remarried, producing four more siblings with his second wife, one with his third wife and two more with his mistress. She was raised with nine (9) brothers and six (6) sisters.

She graduated from West High School in Green Bay, Wisconsin in the class of 2001. She continued to work in order to pay off her medical bills working odd jobs just to make ends meet. In 2004, she decided to take a Creative Writing course online through Stafford Career Institute just to refresh her brain a little more before deciding to forgo a future in writing or further her college education. During the course of her Creative Writing phase, she constantly pursued interviews of some of the underdogs in the entertainment industry. See Lo’s first article interview was published on Asiance Magazine, giving her a taste of accomplishment. However, that still did not satisfy her craving for more.

In the summer of 2006, she interned a position at Eye.D Magazine based in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin. During her three-year intern position, she had garnered herself as a writer and assistant editor with sheer determination. Her work became a niche in working with underdogs, interviewing people who no one ever heard of and constantly steadying her career goals as a writer. However, that came to a standstill when the owner of Eye.D Magazine decided to take down their year run online. See was only just beginning, yet the doors into her work was shut or thought it had.

In the summer of 2009, Eye.D Magazine eventually shut their online edition and disbanded. In the fall of 2009, inspired by her younger sister’s return home she soon went back to college and find out what else was out there for her to do. Amazingly, Lo was introduced to a variety of options and graduated with high honors in Social & Human Services and Cultural & Social Studies with one degree away from Psychology in 2011.

Life was set back once again when her medical condition became worse leaving her with no choice but to focus on her health. She is diagnosed with Osteoarthritis, was unable to do forgo the dream of leaving home.

Lo’s previous work has been published in Wisconsin Pages, Yahoo! Voices, Nubqub International and Asiance Magazine. Lo has published several poems in Paj Ntaub Voice, a literary arts journal and the opportunity to work with published author Robert Danielak and Dr. Alicia Ghiragossian (poet-philosopher) on the second edition of Alicia G: The Poet-Philosopher of the New Millennium.

Lo is a freelance Web Designer and Blogger.
