Sabai is the Thai word for happiness, peace, or bliss — and Sabaitide means to me that everything will be alright no matter the lows and highs. Sabai sabai.
Sabaitide (she/her) is a serial creative project starter from Santa Barbara, CA who enjoys discovering new ways to utilize her media and writing skills in an ongoing list of side projects. She is an emerging Asian American artist and writer who strives to understand her eastern roots in Buddhism and her western perspective as a Christian to get through the motions of an extra ordinary life.
She always had a strong creative side and began to focus more on painting through her young adulthood. During her college studies, she explored other crafts like screen printing and ceramics, but she would always return to a room filled with paintings and works in progress no matter how busy her daily twenty-something life got.
Sabaitide is continuing to expand her art and writing portfolio as she captures the ups and downs of the creative process on her blog where the plotline of her life is that she will write a book someday. Her creative side projects include: oil painting, writing poetry, and occasionally podcasting or making videos about her ongoing creative side projects.
She is also the current Editor-in-Chief of Overachiever Magazine, an online platform for AANHPI women, non-binary individuals, and other gender minorities. As a graphic designer and website developer, Sabaitide is passionate about building community and creating opportunities for other Overachievers to pursue their creative callings.
