Born in amiskwaciwáskahikan (Edmonton) Alberta so called canada. kihew Giroux has been writing from a fairly early age taking an interest in creative story writing in early elementary. Starting off with poorly written children stories as all stories usually start out. For kihew growing up in a rural province like Alberta as a trans feminine indigenous youth was a traumatic and isolating experience, one that would fuel years and years’ worth of creativity as well as drive to be recognized and seen as a person in many spaces where she was not initially welcomed into.

She dabbled in many forms of art from digital to physical to even visual but writing as a form of expression and way to voice one’s struggles and experience was always something they had returned to, excelling in those areas academically and also personally.
