2015 Progress Report:

This year, as a senior at Eastern Regional High School, I am currently taking AP English Literature and Composition. I have delved into the tragedies of Shakespeare to the ever memorable play of Pygmalion. Throughout my journey into British Literature, I have found myself experimenting with a lot more styles and forms of writing. From poetry to writing short plays, I expanded my horizon for both English and writing. With the knowledge and skills I have learned, I see myself becoming more engaged in my literary works.

What “writing for peace” means to me:

Ever since last year when my teacher told me my work would be published, I found a confidence in myself which I never had before. “Writing for Peace” made me realize that my writing has a voice that I never noticed before. Therefore, “writing for peace” is not only a wonderful opportunity for me to share my story but it is also most importantly a medium where I gained the confidence to express my voice through writing.

I look forward to the publication of DoveTales this year! Thank you again for this wonderful opportunity to express myself through writing.
