Born in Chicago and raised in rural New York, I am currently living out my final year of high school in a small town in Southern Vermont -- an area of America that can seem like another country at times! I love art, reading, and playing the violin, as well as science, an area in which I hope to be studying in college soon (preferably in a big city). I also seize every opportunity I can to travel. I've been to England, The Netherlands, France, Belgium, India, and China (where I stayed for five weeks with the Experiment in International Living). Additionally, I am Belize-bound this spring. Most importantly, I enjoy taking all of these things (and more) that I feel passionate about and bringing them all together in writing.
