spoonerism: a verbal error in which a speaker accidentally transposes the initial sounds or letters of two or more words, often to humorous effect, as in the name Lachoua Por rather than the intended name Pachoua Lor.
Hello, I am Pachoua/Pajtsua, an American-born child of Hmong refugees living in Wisconsin. I started this blog in 2016: I was broke and just moved back in with my parents because I had no clue what I wanted to accomplish next. lachouapor became my outlet for reflection and an attempt to relate to others who felt just as lost as I did.
As I continue to grow as a 20-something-year-old, I know that writing will always be major part of my healing process, especially as I try to make sense of the world around me.
Not only is lachouapor a play on words, it’s a reflection of my growth.
