hi! i’m alexandra ling – but most people call me xandra or xan (pronounced zan-drah or zan). my nineteen-year-old self is currently residing in the suburbs of los angeles, california, but my heart dreams of new york city. i’m an avid dreamer (aka i’m ambitious) and one of my biggest dreams is to become a professional ballet dancer. as a means to escape the rigorous training and stressful competition, i read stories on people saving the world. (my struggles seem so small in comparison!) these words on pages allow me to escape reality and remind myself i’m not alone. when i’m not twirling on toes or twirling pages, you can find me working on Twirling Pages (SEE WHAT I DID THERE). okay, when i’m not twirling anything, i’m probably eating plants, sleeping soundly, or learning everything.
hey! i’m nicole wang – though i also sometimes go by nikki. born in california but now living in texas, i’ve never lost my thirst for words (though i’ve certainly lost the time) in all seventeen years of my life. i was originally blogging over at fiction freak, but i decided to join forces with xan after a two-year hiatus due to time constraints because i just missed the blogging world so much. i’m known for writing quotes on my walls in thick black sharpie and working on my art pieces 24/7. pretty much your typical romantic, i’m as obsessed with the stars and night sky as you can possibly get.
hi! i’m priscilla kong, seventeen-year-old reader, writer, and (very) amateur photographer. i’ve lived in california (bay area!) my entire life, but i’m hoping to live in nyc one day – maybe for college! i love young adult books SO much, especially fantasy and romance, which happens to overlap with the genres i write. i write mostly short stories, the occasional poem, and i’m also
struggling with working on a novel. when i’m not reading or writing (which i honestly don’t do as much as i should), i’m either hanging out with my friends, sleeping, and/or eating. or maybe doing homework (aka procrastinating) and/or crying? also, i’m possibly the most emotional person you’ll ever meet.
hello! i am chelsea parker – a sixteen-year-old writer, reader, and professional history nerd from edmonton, alberta, canada, although i subconsciously live and belong in boston. my biggest dream is to become a classics professor after getting my phd, and getting a burmese mountain dog named maine, as well as maybe finally writing a young adult book about butt-kicking girls. next to all that stuff, i’m also a huge advocate for the bisexual community of the world, never failing to throw my opinion into a heated debate about the validity of mga peoples. anyways, catch me reading about dead people at a starbucks while unsubtly checking out my crush and trying to write an essay for ib english.
haaaaaay! i’m kaitlin dang – i am a fifteen year old living in the bay area (WEST COAST: THE BEST COAST), where i spend my days going to school, reading, and staying up too late. i love traveling and exploring new places and love photographing those places even more. i also love food as much as i do books and hope one day i can live in nyc (where i can try new food and photograph new places every day if i wanted to). besides contributing to this blog, and eating, and binge watching chinese dramas, i also have my own blog called next page please! where i talk about books and many other aspects of my life. i live by sarcasm and vscocam.
hey! i’m haley chung – sixteen year old aspiring writer and full-time kitten owner from the western coast of canada. currently, i’m working on a manuscript about sinophone teens learning to love their own culture and a short story about angry girlhood against pink skies. i also harbor a major soft spot for young adult fiction and confessional pieces, although i’ll read anything with a good cliche. aside from spending time with paper and words, you can find me jamming to lorde, laughing in the grass, or passing hazy nights contemplating rom coms.
