Based out of Centennial Colorado, Hannah Blanchsky is emerging as one of the next top teen writers. At 18, she has published several short stories and has been celebrated internationally for her work. Her proudest achievements, however, are her amazing friends and family, who have shown her love and support throughout her life. It is her hope to preserve them all in her writing as well as leave an inspiring legacy for others to follow.
Shout out to my amazing parents, Gorgeous and Groucho, who continue to inspire and encourage me to live the best life possible. Also thank you to my twin brother, who keeps me laughing and humble, and my wonderful family, who have been wonderfully supportive for the past seventeen years.
I would also like to thank the marchers at Arapahoe High School, who will always be my favorite cast of characters, and to my teachers, who have kept me from totally butchering my writing and who have shown me wisdom and kindness I will forever cherish.
But most of all, thank you to my "frands", who are more fantastic, supportive, and loving than I deserve. Without them, none of this would be possible.
