RESUME OF: Doaah Nubain-2S-Onyx-Ghalen
CONTACT INFO: Currently residing on the stolen lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh).
OBJECTIVE: A high paying, leveraged behind the scenes position silencing people I disagree with and controlling how everything thinks, that affords me enough free time and income to pursue interdisciplinary artistry and decolonial practice-based research. Rather like a GenZ Reporter with the CBC, but in America, where things cost less.
EDUCATION: I recently completed my third M.A. degree. I intended on publishing an M.A thesis, apply for art grants, complete art projects, and more, but following a recent racial trauma, I missed my deadlines.
EXPERIENCE: Twitter, Trust and Safety Team, Manager of the Purpose and Activity Ninja Team, 2016-2022, a position for which I was underpaid and overqualified.
SKILLS: I had a mental breakdown after it was overlooked that I had left work early due to stress, and a staff photo was taken without me. This trauma has tremendously impacted my mental and physical health in ways I never experienced before. I haven’t been eating, drinking or sleeping well. My sense of taste and smell changed. Even food I used to enjoy smells repulsive. I have severe neck and shoulder pain that I am currently treating out of pocket since my extended health coverage through work has been exceeded. I have suffered multiple anxiety attacks in public, which is why I limited commuting on public transit and am using Lyft/Uber instead. My ADHD symptoms worsened, as my brain feels extremely overwhelmed trying to navigate ways to cope with the trauma, financial burden, and stress.
My ancestors used dreaming a tool of survival, and I do to.
My ancestors did not have the privilege to heal and decolonize oppressive systems. The scars remain.
