In 2015, Judy Choi discovered in a journal the poems of her 15-year old niece, Phoenix. When she first read her poems, she couldn't believe that someone of her age could write in such an eloquent and sophisticated manner. Phoenix's poems were so beautiful, yet, poignant and tragic at the same time. She was writing poetry as a way to cope with her parents' drug addiction.
Often sad and dark, her poems provide an introspection into the adolescent mindset, expressing the loneliness and emptiness she was feeling due to the absence of her parents from her life.
