About the Author

“I’ve been writing ever since I was little, trying to type out half-developed stories about dogs and trees on the family desktop. My love for performance and entertainment began when I joined my elementary school’s choir, and later our cast for The Sound of Music — a classic! Writing and theatre are both wonderfully expressive outlets for emotion to me, because it gives me the power to make a fleeting thought come alive as something others can enjoy. That’s why I jumped at the chance to write a play for my drama class’s Christmas performance, and later, followed my teacher’s guidance to submit it to this contest. Theatre and storytelling are two of my biggest passion, so I hope to continue them throughout my life — whether as a career (ideally!), or as treasured hobbies.”
