Adulthood is a lifelong conversation about what we used to do as kids.


My debut poetry collection explores early life disconnection, mental phenomena, oppression and rituals of reconnection — starting with writing as resistance.

"A compelling juxtaposition between trauma and its transcendence. Within each word, Raluca weaves the ills of society and its oppression, unravelling the personal-political. Their boldness in exploring this anguish creates an intimate rendition of childhood life, and Raluca delves into the complexity of being a young adult with stories of unhealed wounds, still to be told."
