Karina Hsieh is a Poet, Writer & Entrepreneur fueled by Love and Gratitude. She studied Psychology at Harvard and worked in Silicon Valley as a Happiness Engineer before backpacking solo around the world for 1-1/2 years to cultivate her own self-love and compassion (more on her website Safe & Solo, if you’d like to check out her travels and safety tips). She distilled her learnings into a poetry book on self-love and compassion, “Loving Yourself Into Being” that she published Spring 2020. Now, she is developing “Honeymourn” a new counseling framework to help couples lovingly let go of relationships that are no longer serving them. She is currently obtaining her Master’s in Marriage & Family Therapy at The Wright Institute in Berkeley, CA.
Karina craves exponential growth and perpetually follows Love, especially self-love, as her North Star. When she’s not writing, you can find her dancing, singing, traveling, teaching fitness classes, or unmasking miracles hidden in plain sight.
