About Punita Rice
After getting my doctorate, I started an outreach and advocacy organization, ISAASE (“Improving South Asian American Students’ Experiences”), aimed at helping students. Our main initiatives are the Diversity & Representation Initiative, Teacher Cultural Proficiency Initiative, and the Family Outreach Initiative. I’m also still writing and presenting on South Asian American K-12 experiences, and I’m working on a book on South Asian Americans’ school experiences post-multicultural America (which has its roots in my research). And, of course, I blog here at Punlearning. I started blogging (my first ‘real’ blog was on Tumblr in 2007) as a hobby in college, and mostly wrote about makeup (I also made a handful of hair tutorials on youtube), but eventually shut down those old blogs when I got busier with school. I started Punlearning (it was “Punita Learning” until I realized Punlearning was more fun to say) in 2014, to journal about education and about my program when I started my doctorate, but in the past couple of years as life has changed, the site has grown to include more topics. Today, I write Punlearning, run ISAASE, and freelance as a web developer from home (near Baltimore). You can find me on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook. Thanks for visiting and reading!
