A teenaged aspiring poetess. Hopes to make it as big as Shakespeare. Mixes all the elements from around herself, wraps it around the nib of her pen and the page becomes a canvass where painting is in the form of words. Loves chocolate and also likes being healthy. Takes daily walking rounds 8-10 times if you can count the rounds from her room to the fridge.
