Sweet Designs Featured Writer

Age 17, California

Joined the SDM Team: April 2009

Why I Write for SDM: I write to simply share my stories with the world. It's an escape of some sorts, an escape from reality.

Activities, Sports, Interests: I absolutely love to write, draw, watch anime, read manga, read fiction, read fan-fiction, and traveling.

Favorite Authors: Oh my. Well, I'm not too nit picky about authors. I usually just read if a book interests me, but I suppose if I had to choose it would have to be Harper Lee, Jerry Spinelli, Yana Toboso, and Ryohgo Narita.

Favorite School Subjects: My favorite school subjects would have to be art and foreign language.

Favorite Movies & TV Shows: Inception, Full Metal Alchemist, Code Geass, Fooly Cooly, Black Butler, K-On!, Fractale, and Star Driver.

I listen to: K-pop, J-pop, J-rock, pop, hip-hop, rock, and pretty much anything besides screamo, country, and metal.

Most Important Values: Empathy, pride, independence, creativity, and individuality.

I enjoy: Drawing, painting, writing, reading, watching, shopping, listening, sleeping, daydreaming, and eating.

Future Plans: To become an illustrator and create my own graphic novel, and possibly turn that into an animation.

A Favorite Quote: "I will pursue this dream, 'cause I know it's expected that I be serene.
Upon this winding road, in the face of the crowds that bustle all around,
Although it seems like I am chasing after the past, what I want is a place
Where the sky is alive and like home to me."

- "Again" by Yui
