“I have come to this lonely place, and here is this other.”

Hello! My name is Esther, and this is BraveLiteraryWorld.

I immigrated to the United States from Taiwan in 2002. In 2017, I graduated from the College of William and Mary with a B.A. in English literature. Currently, I am studying secondary education also at William and Mary. I am a member of pretentious American universities’ version of the Slug Club, also known as Phi Beta Kappa.

In my spare time, I like to accidentally double click on Instagram photos from 2012, keep up with the Kardashians, and explore what kind of apartment I am based on my hairstyle. My top favorite smells include morning after a rain, vanilla and cinnamon, and food that someone else prepared. Questions I have include who will end up on the Iron Throne, what kind of fries do I want tonight, and why do people always list things in threes. I also love dogs.
