Yezmin Villarreal

I was born in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, and grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. I went to a Quaker liberal arts college in the south (Greensboro, North Carolina) and I studied abroad in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. I am 25 years old. I love to write.

Alexander Hardy

As a bilingual dual citizen (American and Panamanian) who is a lupus survivor and writes about depression and happens to be a full-time homosexual, I write from the intersection of various communities. To date, my essays have been included in curricula at Emory State University, California State University-Chico, and New York University.
