I'm 17 years old, and I'm a senior at Long Beach Polytechnic High School. After graduating, I will be attending college locally to major in journalism. I've loved writing since I was a little girl, writing exaggerated and elaborate stories about the people and things in my life. I'm an introvert so my free time is spent watching my faves on Netflix.
